Heresy: The Battle of Ideas in Modern Ireland
A challenging book by one of Ireland's most creative social thinkers, this explores the 'civil war for the mind, body and soul of Ireland'. Ranging from the radicalism of Wolfe Tone and James Connolly to the quest for conciliation between Irish nationalism and Ulster unionism, Fennell creates a powerful synthesis of the complex strands of Irish socialism, regionalism, democratic liberalism, and Catholicism.
