   schema:reviewBody ""In this blend of history, historiography and memoir, Rebellions explores the shadowlands where the historical and personal coverge. Tom Dunne tells of his strongly Catholic background, and of his years as a Christian Brother and at university in Dublin and Cambridge, where he moved away from a nationalist view of Irish history to teach and to write in the shadow of 'the Troubles'." "Journeying through the 'cunning passages' of history, Dunne brings an exacting scrutiny to bear upon the bicentennial commemorations of the 1798 Rebellion in Wexford. Here he identifies a failure of responsibility, as leading fellow-historians become complicit in eliding and sanitizing brutal events through a filter of selective amnesia and denial." "Dunne then focuses on a single bloody day, 5 June 1798. This saw a crushing defeat of insurgents in the battle of New Ross, and the massacre by rebels of over a hundred Protestant non-combatants in a barn at Scullabogue. As Dunne fuses the professional with the personal - a well-remembered ancestor of his died heroically at New Ross - tracing the competing accounts of this day over two centuries, he reassembles these shards into a memorable picture of a private and collective past."--BOOK JACKET." ;
