Product description

The Atlas of the Irish Revolution draws together existing and ongoing new research into the revolutionary period in a broad ranging and inclusive manner. It includes contributions from leading scholars across a range of disciplines, incorporating the 'big issues' - such as gender, class, community, religion and ethnicity, the nature of violence, periodization and the geography of revolution - while also maintaining a close focus on events as they impacted at a local level. The analysis of conditions in the provinces, counties and parishes tells the stories of particular individuals and families caught up in the events of these years. The spatial/cartographic emphasis required the production of a range of new data that is represented locally, regionally, nationally (across the thirty-two counties) and internationally; this adds an important new dimension to our understanding of the period and to the historical geography of the revolutionary years. The Atlas also includes sections on the evolution of revolution, and on its aftermath, legacy and the collective memory and cultural representation of this fascinating, transformative period of Irish history.A chronologically and thematically organised treatment of the period will form the core of the atlas, but the political, military, social, cultural and economic roots of the revolution, as well as its short-, medium- and long-term impacts on Irish life will also be analysed and mapped.
The visualisation of the period will be enhanced by the extensive use of archival documents, photographs and paintings. These images will help bring the period to life for a broad audience -academic, school students and the general public. As well as reflecting existing scholarship, the new material will also serve as a resource and impetus for further research and scholarship.
