A nation and not a rabble : the Irish revolution, 1913-1923 by Diarmaid Ferriter( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned Irish historian Diarmaid Ferriter presents a new look at the Irish revolutionary period from 1913-1923, drawing from newly available historical sources as well as the testimonies of the people who lived and fought through this extraordinary period. Packed with violence, political drama and social and cultural upheaval, the years 1913-1923 saw the emergence in Ireland of the Ulster Volunteer Force to resist Irish home rule and in response, the Irish Volunteers, who would later evolve into the IRA. World War One, the rise of Sinn Fein, intense Ulster unionism and conflict with Britain culminated in the Irish war of Independence, which ended with a compromise treaty with Britain and then the enmities and drama of the Irish Civil War. Drawing on an abundance of newly released archival material, witness statements and testimony from the ordinary Irish people who lived and fought through extraordinary times, A Nation and not a Rabble explores these revolutions. Diarmaid Ferriter highlights the gulf between rhetoric and reality in politics and violence, the role of women, the battle for material survival, the impact of key Irish Unionist and Republican leaders, as well as conflicts over health, land, religion, law and order, and welfare"--From publisher

Ambiguous republic : Ireland in the 1970s by Diarmaid Ferriter( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major appraisal of a crucial decade in Ireland's recent history by the leading Irish historian of his generation, based on recently opened archives and many previously unpublished public and private papers. In this definitive history of the Irish Rebublic in the 1970's, Diarmaid Ferriter considers the widespread social, cultural, economic and political upheavals of the 1970's, a period when the Northern Irish Troubles profoundly affected the governance of the Republic, when Ireland joined the EEC; when for the first time a majority of the population lived in urban areas and when economic challenges abounded. The decade also witnessed an increasingly visible feminist movement, and the political and legal establishments and other powerful institutions, including the Catholic Church, began to be subjected to new criticisms. -- Back cover

Ada English : patriot and psychiatrist by Brendan Kelly( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the untold story of the life and work of Dr. Adeline (Ada) English (1875-1944), a pioneering Irish psychiatrist deeply involved in Irish politics. Ada English spent four decades working at Ballinasloe District Lunatic Asylum, during which time she introduced significant therapeutic innovations. A passionate participant in Ireland's Easter Rising, English spent six months in Galway Jail for possessing nationalistic literature and was elected as a Teachta Dala in 1921. A friend to Pearse, McDonagh, Griffith, Mellows, De Valera, and others, she became heavily involved in the country's civil war. This engaging and sensitive biography reveals the gifted, compassionate, and modest woman behind the revolutionary medical achievements and political engagements, her education and medical training, her 40-year career at Ballinasloe, and her position within the context of pioneering Irish medical women, such as Kathleen Lynn and Dorothy Stopford Price. The book also shines light on a woman whose abiding concern was for those she cared for - so much so that she requested to be buried alongside her former patients. -- Publisher description
