Good so far, but I'm afraid the author might be looking at ol' Jenghy through yellow-tinted glasses. Whenever I want to buy an history book, I research to see what one is regarded as the "most definitive" because I usually don't read multiple books on the same subjects, too much redundancy in life.
I do not get Irish gypsys. Visited their enclave in SC. They all have these gigantic ghastly houses which are boarded up and don't appear to have anything inside of them, and trailer parks in their back yards. Also, a lot of them drive Maseratis and Corvettes. I want to know more.
