HISTORY OF THE IRISH STATE TO 1014. By Alice Stopford
Green. (Macmillan. 12s. 6d.) THE enthusiasm and learning which Mrs. Green brings to her subject are well known. In this volume Mrs. Green tells the story of Ireland up to the death of Brian Boru at the battle of Clontart which " finally ended the possibility of a foreign Scandinavian conquest and sovereignty in Ireland." It is not likely that this book will be soon superseded.
