Remembering the Year of the French is a model of historical achievement, moving deftly between the study of historical events—the failed French invasion of the West of Ireland in 1798;and folkloric representations of those events. Delving into the folk history found in Ireland¿s archives and rich oral traditions, Guy Beiner reveals alternate visions of the Irish past and brings into focus the vernacular histories, folk commemorative practices, and negotiations of memory that had gone largely unnoticed by historians. Though his focus is 1798, his work is also a comprehensive study of Irish folk history and of grassroots social memory. ¿Guy Beiner here shows himself to be a historian of unusual talent.¿ ---Marianne Elliott, Times Literary Supplement ¿Accessible, full of intriguing detail, and eminently teachable. . . . Superb, painstaking scholarship that makes lasting contributions to Irish studies and to cultural and historical studies writ large.¿ ---Ray Cashman, New Hibernia Review ¿A brilliant and original contribution not only to Irish history . . . but also to the study of social memory.¿ ---Peter Burke, University of Cambridge
