Sean O'Rourke interviews Dr John Gibney on our latest book Ireland: a voice among the nations

Tune in to RTÉ Radio 1 tomorrow, Wednesday, 6 November, at 11 a.m. and listen to our author John Gibney talk with Sean O'Rourke about our latest publication Ireland: a voice among the nations (John Gibney, Michael Kennedy, Kate O'Malley).

Ireland: a voice among the nations is a richly illustrated history of Irish foreign policy. It explores how a small state such as Ireland has related to the wider world, by examining how Irish diplomats and politicians responded to the challenges presented by the upheavals of the twentieth century and how this small European state engaged with the world, from the Versailles peace conference of 1919 to the globalisation of the twenty-first century. 

This is a centenary project of the Royal Irish Academy, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the National Archives.
