Patrick Pearse was not only leader of the 1916 Easter Rising but also one of the main ideologues of the IRA. Based on new material on his childhood and underground activities, this book places him in a European context and provides an intimate account of the development of his ideas on cultural regeneration, education, patriotism and militarism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An important contribution to our knowledge of Ireland's most complex revolutionary. By providing a rounded portrait of Patrick Pearse's life, and setting his ideas within the broader context of his times, Augusteijn offers a compelling account of Pearse's journey from cultural nationalism to republican violence.' - Fearghal McGarry, Queen's University Belfast

'A welcome and much-needed reassessment of the life of Patrick Pearse. Drawing on many previously unknown sources, Augustejin describes a figure who is more complex, and ultimately more human, than the popular image of Pearse allows. This book will surely become essential reading for anyone interested in Pearse and his times.' - Brian Crowley, Curator of the Pearse Museum, Dublin

'This book is a major contribution to our undestanding of Patrick Pearse and early twentieth-century Ireland. Any further analysis will rest on a solid base of empirical research, and in providing this thorough account of Pearse's life, Joost Augusteijn has opened up significant new dimensions of his subject for exploration.' - Irish Historical Studies
