Abstract:
F H A Aalen & Kevin Whelan open this Festschrift honouring a leading Irish historical geographer with a `Preface' (v) which is followed by `John Harwood Andrews -- an appreciation' (1-4) by Joseph Haughton. Most of the rest of the book comprises a series of articles dealing with the changing historical landscape of the Dublin region.The range and distribution of various archaeological sites in the county of Dublin is treated in `Patterns in the past: County Dublin 5000BC--1000AD' (5-42) by Geraldine Stout & Matthew Stout, who tabulate their data in the following appendices: `Appendix I: Early coastal settlement in county Dublin' (26), `Appendix II: Megalithic tombs in county Dublin' (27-8), Appendix III: Bronze Age burials in county Dublin' (28-30), `Appendix IV: Late Bronze Age and Iron Age sites in county Dublin' (31-3), `Appendix V: Early Christian sites in county Dublin' (33-7) and `Appendix VI: Early Christian secular sites in county Dublin' (37-41). John Bradley then discusses `The topographical development of Scandinavian Dublin' (43-56) while Tadhg O'Keefe assesses the development of the mottes, ringworks, castles and boundary earthwork that protected the borders of the English colony within the Dublin region in `Medieval frontiers and fortification: The Pale and its evolution' (57-78). A chronological typology of the `Villages in County Dublin: their origins and inheritance' (79-120) is constructed by Anngret Simms & Patricia Fagan who list their observations in `Appendix 1A: Composition of settlements in county Dublin in 1837' (116-119) and in `Appendix 1B: Agricultural clusters without institutional buildings' (119).The remaining articles are essentially historical in nature. William J Smyth writes about `Exploring the social and cultural topographies of sixteenth and seventeenth century County Dublin' (121-80) and is followed by a more localised land tenure-based analysis of `Society and settlement in the valley of Glenasmole c.1750-c.1900' (181-228) by William Nolan. `The evolution of Catholic parishes in Dublin City from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries' (229-50) by Conchubhair Ó Fearghail includes an `Appendix A-F. (The sub-division of catholic parishes)' (248-50) in the form of a series of line pedigrees tracing the formations of the new parishes. Louis M Cullen then treats of `The growth of Dublin 1600-1900: character and heritage' (251-78) while F H A Aalen examines `Health and housing in Dublin c.1850 to 1921' (279-304). `Transport in Dublin: past, present and future' (305-26) by James Killen concentrates on mechanised transportation from railways and tramways of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to the explosion in ownership of motor cars following World War Two, and considers their impact on urban planning. The growth of the capital's metropolitan area is looked at by Arnold Horner in `From city to city-region -- Dublin from the 1930s to the 1990s' (327-58). Desmond A Gillmor then assesses the impact of the city on its rural hinterland in `Dublin City's countryside' (359-78).Finally, the academic career of J H Andrews and his contributions to Irish historical geography are outlined by Kevin Whelan in `Beyond a paper landscape -- John Andrews and Irish historical geography' (379-424) and by Richard Haworth & K M Davies in `A bibliography of the writings of J H Andrews' (425-40).
