The Irish Martyrs, edited by Patrick J. Corish and Benignus Millett, tells the stories of 17 of the many clergy, religious, and lay people in Ireland who suffered death for their faith in the 16th and 17th centuries. The 17 were all beatified in 1992 (Four Courts Press, £40 (£36); 1-85182-858-3).

And David Ceri Jones tells the story of Welsh Methodism and the international Evangelical revival in his A Glorious Work in the World. He concentrates particularly on the relationship between what was happening in Wales and what was going on in England, France, Scotland, Ireland, France, and the United States at the same time (University of Wales Press, £45; 0-7083-1870-3).
