9780389209348: Nineteenth-Century Ireland (New Gill History of Ireland 5)

Nineteenth-century Ireland began and ended in armed revolt. The "long" century lasted from the bloody insurrections of 1798 until 1922, by which time the institutions of modern Ireland were in place against a background of the Great War, the Ulster rebellion, and the armed uprising of nationalist Ireland. The years between 1800 and 1922 represented an attempt to make the union workóa search for stability. Professor Boyce examines nationalist Ireland against the backdrop of the great famine, the Industrial Revolution, and the home rule period from the 1880s to 1914. He concludes that the search for stability failed because the malign divisions of Irish history proved too strong. This book will be of value to students and scholars of Nineteenth century western European history and Irish studies.
