Ireland and India : nationalism, empire and memory
Michael Silvestri (Author)
Through a consideration of historical memory, commemoration and the 'imagined communities' of nationalism, Ireland and India examines three aspects of Ireland's imperial history: relationships between Irish and Indian nationalists, the construction of Irishmen as imperial heroes, and the commemoration of an Irish regiment's mutiny in India.
