The tree of liberty : radicalism, Catholicism, and the construction of Irish identity, 1760-1830 by Kevin Whelan( Book )
19 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 375 libraries worldwide
If the 1790s can be seen as the pivotal decade in the evolution of modern Ireland, then an understanding of it is not just of scholarly interest, but has repercussions for current political and cultural debates. Precisely because of that enduring relevance, the 1790s have never passed out of politics into history. These essays look again at the window of opportunity which opened towards a non-sectarian, democratic and inclusive politics, adequately representing the Irish people in all their inherited complexities. These four new essays by this gifted and authoritative writer explain why that project was defeated and remains uncompleted. Understanding the reasons for its momentous defeat in the 1790s can help in ensuring that history does not repeat itself in the 1990s. Relieved of the disabling weight of confused meanings, the 1790s cease to be divisive. As the bicentenary of 1798 approaches the creation of an hospitable approach to all that it symbolizes becomes both desirable and necessary

The United Irishmen : republicanism, radicalism, and rebellion ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
The 1790s, coloured by revolutions in France and North America, were to see the birth of republicanism in Ireland and the emergence of radical Presbyterianism in the north. This decade is increasingly being considered as one of the most formative in modern Irish history. This book includes fresh interpretations of the period by 22 distinguished international historians, all contributors to the 1991 conference marking the bicentenary of the founding of the Societies of United Irishmen in Belfast and Dublin. These scholarly evaluations give a fascinating composite portrait of 1790s Ireland, a crucible of nationalism, nascent 19th century democratic politics and social and cultural change. They make a significant contribution to the study and understanding of Irish history. -- Publisher description
