Postcolonial Dublin shows how perpetrators of colonialism in Ireland have made use of urban planning and architecture to underscore and legitimate ideologies. Looking at objects such as Londonderry's Market House, Patrick Abercrombie's Dublin of the Future, and the urban renewal project of today's Temple Bar, Andrew Kincaid highlights Ireland's colonial history and the significance of architecture in the evolution of national identity.
³An important, even provocative, work.² ‹Seamus Deane
