9780330427593: Irish Freedom: The History of Nationalism in Ireland

Full of rich details drawn from years of original research, this study analyzes the shaping of the past, present, and future of Ireland through the history of Irish nationalism. A full presentation and explanation of why Irish nationalists have believed and acted as they have, why their ideas and strategies have changed over time, and what effect Irish nationalism has had in shaping modern Ireland is included. From the Ulster Plantation to Home Rule, from the Famine of 1847 to the Hunger Strikes of the 1970s, from Parnell to Pearse, from Wolfe Tone to Gerry Adams, from the bitter struggle of the Civil War to the uneasy peace of the early 21st century, this work investigates the key points in Irish history and debates the possibility of a post-nationalist period for Ireland.

Richard English s brilliant new book, now available in paperback, is a compelling narrative history of Irish nationalism, in which events are not merely recounted but analysed. Full of rich detail, drawn from years of original research and also from the extensive specialist literature on the subject, it offers explanations of why Irish nationalists have believed and acted as they have, why their ideas and strategies have changed over time, and what effect Irish nationalism has had in shaping modern Ireland.

Is it imaginable that Ireland might -- as some have suggested -- be about to enter a post-nationalist period? Or will Irish nationalism remain a defining force on the island in future years? a courageous and successful attempt to synthesise the entire story between two covers for the neophyte and for the exhausted specialist alike Tom Garvin, Irish Times.
