McBride (history, Illinois State U.) has collected nine contributions that focus generally on how manifestations of popular culture in Ireland during the 19th and 20th centuries affected the development of the historical consciousness of Irish nationalists. The essays explore topics such as the Manchester executions, Irish land war, Irish female types during the era of Parnell, nationalist political illustrations and the Parnell myth, symbolism and realism in cover art, the politics of photography, advanced nationalist response to atrocity propaganda, commemorating the hero in newly independent Ireland, and images, icons, and the Irish nationalist imagination. Contains many b&w illustrations. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
