The author chronicles the colourful history of the magazine and discusses The Bell's contribution and response to the transformation of Irish society in the mid-twentieth century, as the experience of war and wartime censorship, the expansion of international relations, and the encroaching tide of technological modernization irrevocable changed the patterns of traditional Irish life."...dj $75.00
