The Shaping of Modern Ireland : A Centenary Assessment

The Shaping of Modern Ireland : A Centenary Assessment

Edited by Eugenio Biagini , Edited by Daniel Mulhall

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Originally published in 1960 and edited by Conor Cruise O'Brien, The Shaping of Modern Ireland was a seminal work surveying the lives of prominent early twentieth-century figures who influenced Irish affairs in the years between Charles Stewart Parnell in 1891 and the Easter Rising of 1916. The chapters were written by peerless historians and commentators from the Ireland of the 1950s - leading lights of their generation who personally knew a number of the subjects of their essays.

This new and expanded volume, written by today's leading figures from the world of Irish history, politics, journalism, and the arts, offers a fresh and profound reassessment of those crucial years culminating in the Easter Rising when everything 'changed utterly'. With contemporary re-appraisals of figures of the stature of Collins, de Valera, Pearse, Connolly, Griffith, Carson, Yeats and Markievicz, a new and equally penetrating debate on modern Irish history can be enjoyed within the pages of this vital, new collection.
