An excellent history of the Department of the Environment/Local Government. As with her other works Mary Daly is typically thorough in her research. The book, through a series of concise chapters, details how the Department evolved pre and post Independence. The impacts of different parties assuming office at the Custom House is assessed. Using material from the archives this is particularly interesting. It can be clearly seen how the policy of centralising power in the Custom House and reducing the power of local authorities came to be supported by all political parties. ( )
