View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This text traces the rise of the nationalist movement in turn-of-the-century Ireland, the gaps and incoherences of the nationalist tradition and its subsequent re-invention. The author pays particular attention to the activities of the various separatist societies grouped grouped under the title Sinn Fein, parliamentary dissidents such as William O'Brien and the mainstream parliamentary party under John Redmond. In the process, he traces the silent rise of Sinn Fein which led to its spectacular victory in the 1918 election.
