An Irish kaleidoscope is how literary historian McCormack (Ascendancy and Tradition in Anglo-Irish Literary History from 1789 to 1939, 1985) describes this volume on Anglophone Irish culture since 1450. The alphabetical entries, which range from Abbey Theatre to the balladeer Zozimus, vary in length from a brief paragraph to several pages. The work focuses on the arts but contains entries on other cultural matters such as abortion, divorce, education, and religion. The volume, the editor notes, is intended to entertain as well as inform, so entries contain opinion as well as fact. Since collective headings are often used, the same subject turns up in various citations, making the index essential, especially because there are no cross references. Some headings seem odd, such as Fiction to 1830; no reason is given for this date limitation, and there are no other entries on fiction. In addition, some entries highlighting the current state of their subjects may soon become dated. Nonetheless, this resource provides valuable insights into Irish culture. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.Denise J. Stankovics, Rockville P.L., Vernon, CT
