Revolution in Ireland: Popular Militancy, 1917 to 1923
The period 1917 to 1923 was a dramatic one in twentieth-century Irish history. The sectarian divisions of this time created the roots of the present conflict in the North, and the two major political parties in the South. Kostick examines the range of struggles in Ireland in this period within the framework of contemporary events, notably the 1914-18 war and the Russian Revolution of 1917. He makes a comprehensive analysis of the groups and individuals, that played a role in these struggles, offering a good historical background to Neil Jordan's film Michael Collins, starring Liam Neeson and Julia Roberts. Unlike other studies of the period, this book highlights the major role played by working people throughout the country.
