I always find when I read Garrett's work, whether its in the Irish Times or elsewhere, I almost yearn for a time in the history of the Irish state when politicians seemed more competent, compassionate and trustworthy. Perhaps I am viewing history 'through rose coloured spectacles'. Nevertheless Garrett's book is excellent review on the recent history of the Irish state. It is by no mean all encompassing by its his own admission, but the areas which are explored are done so with impartiality, wit and the irrefutable reason, for which Garrett is renowned. I found it to be a very accessible book and would recommend it to anyone, Irish or not, trying to understand how are nation has evolved.
