The fourth volume in the History Ireland commemorative series on aspects of the Irish Revolution.
The Treaty, Civil War and partition profoundly shaped the Ireland in which we live. To mark the centenary of the Treaty and Civil War, History Ireland has produced a special supplement, The Split: From Treaty to Civil War 1921–23, featuring historians and writers. The Split introduces ground-breaking articles on women and the Treaty, the role of Eamon de Valera, the establishment of the Gardaí, the dead of the Civil War, the global reaction to Ireland’s independence, and the violence inside the new Northern Ireland state and along the border. It discusses controversial questions regarding Michael Collins and military dictatorship, why the Free State won the Civil War and how Northern Ireland came into being. It looks at how the war has been remembered and asks whether the era of Civil War politics has ended.
Contributors include President Michael D. Higgins, John Borgonovo, Theo Dorgan. Bill Kissane, Mary McAuliffe, David McCullagh, Elizabeth Malcolm, Margaret O’Callaghan, John M. Regan and Charles Townshend.
