The Isle of Man has a particular fascination for students of politics, culture and society. situated in the middle of the Irish Sea, the island has been open to the varied interests and influences exerted by four larger neighbouring nations -- England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales -- for over fifteen hundred years. In its long and often turbulent history the island has been a Scandinavian settlement, a cradle of Celtic Christianity and language, and a feudal kingdom. It was invaded and occupied during the English Civil War, became a refuge of smugglers in the eighteenth century and, after much political struggle and debate, was finally acquired by the British Crown in 1828. throughout the administrative changes of the nineteenth century, the Manx people continued to assert their desire for that internal autonomy which was ultimately achieved and which they guard jealously to this day.
