The Easter Rising was the catalyst for profound political change in Ireland. From being a minority belief in April 1916, by the post-war general election of December 1918 separatist republicanism had come firmly into Ireland's political mainstream, and had done so at the expense of Ireland's traditional nationalist representatives. How did this happen?
It is often assumed that the execution of the 1916 leaders in May 1916 prompted immediate and profound change, in the form of a surge of sympathy towards their cause. That sympathy did come; but the manner in which it happened is far less well known, and arguably not so well understood. This volume, the second in History Ireland's special publications on the revolutionary period, explores the period between the Rising and the 'victory of Sinn Féin' at the 1918 general election.
