9780192801869: The Rising: Easter 1916

The Easter Rising of 1916 not only destroyed much of the centre of Dublin - it changed the course of Irish history. But how did it achieve this? What role did people from ordinary backgrounds play in the making of the Irish revolution and what motivated them to take part in it? What did the rebels think they could achieve? And what kind of a republic were they fighting for? These basic questions continue to divide historians of modern Ireland.

The Rising is the story of Easter 1916 from the perspective of those who made it, focusing on the experiences of rank and file revolutionaries - a story now told for the first time. To do this, Fearghal McGarry makes use of a unique source that has only recently seen the light of day - a collection of over 1,700 eye-witness statements detailing the activities of members of Sinn Féin, the Irish Republican Brotherhood, Cumann na mBan, and the Irish Volunteers at the time of the Rising. This collection represents one of the richest and most comprehensive oral history archives devoted to any modern revolution, providing new insights on almost every aspect of this seminal period.

Using this unique source, McGarry shows how people from ordinary backgrounds became politicized and involved in the struggle for Irish independence in the early years of the twentieth century. He illuminates their motives and aspirations and highlights the importance of the Great War as a catalyst for the uprising. He concludes by exploring the Rising's revolutionary aftermath, which saw the creation of an Irish parliament, Dáil Éireann, and the Irish Republican Army's armed campaign to win independence.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, New York/Oxford/London, 2010. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. 384 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. IRELAND. Based on a recently released trove of over 1,700 eye-witness statements, this gripping volume tells the story of the Easter Rising as seen through the eyes of the rebels themselves, capturing in crisp, unflinching detail what the nascent Irish revolution actually felt like. As it chronicles the activities of members of Sinn Fein, the Irish Republican Brotherhood, Cumann na mBan, and the Irish Volunteers, this compelling volume addresses a range of key questions that continue to divide historians of modern Ireland: What led people from ordinary backgrounds to fight for Irish freedom? What did they think they could achieve given the superior forces arrayed against them? What kind of republic were they willing to kill and die for? Fearghal McGarry deftly interweaves the oral history of the rank-and-file revolutionaries of the Rising into a comprehensive, yet powerfully affecting narrative--one that The Boston Globe called "vivid and compelling" and "a poignant mosaic of idealism, bravery, and humanity." Features * The story of the Easter Rising told from the perspective of ordinary revolutionaries. * Capitalizes on recently released interviews with over 1700 eye-witnesses to provide new insights into almost every aspect of this seminal event. * Shows how ordinary people became involved in the independence struggle and what their aspirations for Ireland were. * Looks at the wider context of the Rising's revolutionary aftermath and how it changed the course of Irish history. "Although the subject has been covered before, in this work McGarry uses primary sources only recently made available, focusing not on the major leaders but on members of the rank and file, and lets them provide the descriptions of what happened almost 100 years ago. . An important addition to the field." - Library Journal "McGarry's prose throughout does justice to the very dramatic story he tells. He seamlessly weaves together these richly evocative witnesses with current historiography and narrative, making this book both a major addition to what has already been done, but also an excellent introduction for the general reader to the Rising of 1916." - America "[A] vivid and compelling narrative that explores the thoughts, fears, and motivations of the revolutionaries in this seminal event in the nation's fight for independence, . The Rising offers invaluable insights into the insurrection from ground level. . [A] poignant mosaic of idealism, bravery, and humanity, . The Rising is rich with tales of the acts of ordinary Dubliners." - Boston Globe "McGarry succeeds in exposing what few histories of the Rising have done: how the ordinary men and women felt as their city fell around them, bursting into flame and assaulted by rebels and the counterattacks by British troops rushed in to crush the latest in a series of seemingly futile uprisings." - New York Journal of Books Fearghal McGarry is Senior Lecturer in History at Queen's University, Belfast. He is the author of a number of books on Irish history in the twentieth century, including Frank Ryan, Irish Politics and the Spanish Civil War, and Eoin O'Duffy: A Self-Made Hero.
