About eighty million people today can trace their descent back to the occupants of Ireland. But where did the occupants of the island themselves come from and what do we even mean by “Irish” in the first place? This is the first major attempt to deal with the core issues of how the Irish came into being. J. P. Mallory emphasizes that the Irish did not have a single origin, but are a product of multiple influences that can only be tracked by employing the disciplines of archaeology, genetics, geology, linguistics, and mythology. Beginning with the collision that fused the two halves of Ireland together, the book traces Ireland’s long journey through space and time to become an island. The origins of its first farmers and their monumental impact on the island is followed by an exploration of how metallurgists in copper, bronze, and iron brought Ireland into increasingly wider orbits of European culture. Assessments of traditional explanations of Irish origins are combined with the very latest genetic research into the biological origins of the Irish.

Ireland's Constitution of 1937 represents the culmination of the 'constitutional revolution' begun by Eamon de Valera, John Hearne, and others from the 1930s. Marking the 75th anniversary, The Origins of the Irish Constitution, 1928-1941 is a comprehensive selection of key documents relating to the development and drafting of the Constitution.

It is commonly believed that James Connolly initiated modern Irish socialism when he founded the Irish Socialist Republican Party in May 1896. This book challenges that myth by making available for the first time a detailed history of the beginnings of modern Irish socialism. Based on original sources, this study traces the development of socialism in Ireland from the influence of William Thompson, Marx and the First International through to the arrival of Connolly and the struggle for independence. The author explores the radicalizing element of the land war, the impact of British socialism in Ireland, and the emergence of socialist organizations in Dublin. He also examines the leading role played by socialists in the politicization of the labour movement and charts their changing position in relation to Irish independence.
In the annals of Irish studies and theater history much has been written about the Abbey Theatre. This book sheds new light on that company's history, but also examines other groups with a range of political, religious, gender, and class perspectives that consciously used performance to promote ideas about nationalism and culture in Ireland at the turn of the last century. This interdisciplinary work details how different nationalist organizations with diverse political and artistic goals employed theater as an anticolonial tool. This is a compelling analysis of these and other groups' prominent role in Irish nationalism in the years before Easter 1916, and the way these political theaters gave birth to modern Irish drama. -- Publishers description.
