More About This Textbook

Overview


The essays in The I.R.A. at War propose a new history of this Irish revolution: one that encompasses the whole of the island as well as Britain, all of the violence and its consequences, and the entire period from the Easter Rising to the end of the Civil War. Using new research and questioning old assumptions, these sparkling essays by Peter Hart address these and other controversies to suggest new ways of looking at the history of the Irish Revolution of 1916-23.
