The Irish Revolution, 1913-1923 by Joost Augusteijn

The Irish Revolution, 1913-1923


The Irish Revolution, 1913-1923 by Joost Augusteijn

Was there an Irish Revolution, and - if so - what kind of revolution was it? What motivated revolutionaries and those who supported them? How was the war fought and ended? What have been the repercussions for unionists, women and modern Irish politics?These questions are here addressed by leading historians of the period through both detailed assessments of specific incidents and wide-ranging analysis of key themes. The Irish Revolution, 1913-1923 provides the most up-to-date answers to, and debate on, the fundamental questions relating to this formative period in Irish history.Clear coverage of the historiography and a detailed chronology make this book ideal for classroom use. The Irish Revolution is essential reading for students and scholars of modern Ireland, and for all those interested in the study of revolution.


'...excellent and stimulating collection of essays.' - Maurice Walsh, BBC Journalist, New Statesman 'Excellent - useful for new concepts of revolution and key areas of study.' - Dr Mike Cronin, De Montfort University 'The coherence of the book is achieved through the theme of 'Revolution'
which all the articles consciously develop, even where

is not mentioned in the article title. A good book

.' - Dr S Warwick-Haller, Kingston University

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
