The Easter Rising: Revolution and Irish Nationalism

by

The Easter Rising: Revolution and Irish Nationalism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this innovative work, Alan Ward uses the pivotal event in twentieth-century Irish history as a prism through which to survey Irish history from the twelfth century to the present.

By asking why the Easter Rising occurred, Ward is able to review the history of Anglo-Irish relations, from the time of Norman settlement to World War I, as well as the development of several kinds of Irish nationalism in the nineteenth century. Then, by asking what the effects of the Rising have been, Ward discusses the Irish war of independence, the creation of the Irish Free State, and the Irish civil war, pondering the influence of the various strands of Irish nationalism on the modern state.

Finally, the book reviews the conflict in Northern Ireland from the 1960s all the way to the fall of 2002, making this distinctive and analysis ideal for use as a core text in Irish history or superb supplementary reading for survey courses in British, European, and World History.

Book News Annotation:

The Easter Rising is used as a prism through which to survey Irish history from the 12th century to the present in this text for undergraduates. The book reviews the history of Anglo-Irish relations, examines the development of Irish nationalism, discusses the Irish war of independence, and looks at the conflict in Northern Ireland from the 1960s to 2002. This second edition takes into account events since the first edition was published in 1980. Ward teaches government at the College of William and Mary.
