1916 in 1966: Commemorating the Easter Rising' looks closely at how the Irish government reinvented the message of Easter 1916 through the official golden jubilee celebrations of the nationalist Rising. This collection of essays explores the organization of various unofficial commemorations in Northern Ireland in 1966 and the significance of these for nationalist and unionist politics in the mid-1960s. It analyzes the golden jubilee of the Rising from a political perspective, and revisits the 1966 anniversary from the perspectives of drama, performance, youth culture and history. Contributors to the book are the editors, Mary E. Daly and Margaret O'Callaghan, and: Diarmaid Ferriter, Rebecca Graff-McRae, Roisin Higgins, Carole Holohan, Michael Laffan, Catherine O'Donnell and Anthony Roche.
