'This essay collection provides an excellent analysis of Ireland’s various interactions with its European allies, from the early medieval period up to the present moment. [...] It is a highly attractive tome which does credit to its subject matter, to the indefatigable work of its editors and to the Royal Irish Academy, who published it. At €25, it is an absolute steal and I warmly urge readers to get themselves a copy without delay'. Eamon Maher, The Irish Times, 4 September 2019. Read the full review.
'a timely contribution to the debate about Ireland's present and future place in the European community of nations'. Peter Murray, Irish Arts Review, Autumn 2019.
