`To attempt to present the history of Ireland from its beginnings to the 16th century as Dr Richter has done, is as hazardous a task as crossing Niagara on a tightrope...he has succeeded in passing from one end to the other with very few wobbles...His knowledge of the literature is full and accurate, his judgement sane, and exposition lucid.' Irish Historical Review Translated for the first time into English from German, this is the most comprehensive survey of ancient and medieval Ireland available.
