Publisher: London : Head Of Zeus, 2015Description: 329 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm.Content type: text | still image Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781784080099.Other title: Nineteen sixteen.Subject(s): Revolutionaries -- Ireland -- History | Ireland -- History -- Easter Rising, 1916 | Ireland -- Politics and government -- 1910-1921DDC classification: 941.50821 Summary: The 1916 Easter Rising and its aftermath changed Ireland for ever. The British government's execution of 14 republican rebels transformed a group hitherto perceived as cranks and troublemakers into national heroes. Those who avoided the British firing squads of May 1916 went on to plan a new - and ultimately successful - struggle for Ireland's independence, shaping their country's destiny for the century to come. Historian Tim Pat Coogan offers a strongly personal perspective on the Irish century that followed the Rising - charting a flawed history that is marked as much by complacency, corruption and institutional and clerical abuse, as it is by the sacrifices and nation-building achievements of the Republic's founding fathers -- Source other than Library of Congress.
