Has history been unkind to the Russian Revolution?

March's history book recommendations

Join Patrick Geoghegan for this month's book show as he talks with the authors of some amazing new history books, including:

  • Stephen Kelly's study of Charles Haughey's fractured relationship with Northern Ireland
  • An account of the Irish who helped shape modern South America, by Tim Fanning
  • Brendan Kelly's history of psychiatry in Ireland
  • Mark William's exploration of Irish mythological gods and how they have been cast and recast in literature
  • And Neil Faulkner's new history of the Russian Revolution, that sees 1917 as an explosion of democracy
