Based on extensive historical, literary and political research, this text examines the relationship between ideas and political and social reality. It explains why the aspirations of Irish nationalism have failed to modify the facts of Irish political conflict and sectarian division. For this revised edition, Professor Boyce has added a new final chapter which considers the development of nationalism in both parts of Ireland in the light of the most recent political events and places the phenomenon of nationalism in its contemporary and European setting.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It will satisfy the student and stimulate the general reader seeking a full understanding of the national struggle in one of the first countries to throw off Britain's imperial rule.' - David Harkness, Professor of Irish History, Queen's University, Belfast

'The idea, fashionable for a generation after 1945, that the era of nationalism is over has suddenly begun to appear quaint. This makes a second edition of Boyce's book particularly appropriate.' - Tom Garvin, Professor of Politics, University College, Dublin in Irish Historical Studies, 1994

'... his careful, well-written and structured analysis and synthesis of most of the best in a rapidly expanding Irish historiography qualifies his book as the best on the subject.' - Lawrence J. McCaffrey

'The book will be an essential addition to any student's work on Ireland, analysis of the ingredients which form nationalism.' - Scottish Association of Teachers of History Resources Review

'Boyce's Nationalism in Ireland is in every sense an original and scholarly contribution to a long discussed and controversial subject. There is no study quite like it.' - CHOICE
