Editorial Reviews


`Review from other book by this author a superb, multi-layered history of the "intimate war" of this dark, iconic period in Cork ... a vivid deeply affecting book.' Mic Moroney, Irish Times

`Irish historians have written extensively about the troubles" of 1916-23, but few have done so as masterfully or with as much originality as Hart. ... an illuminating, often gripping account that students of modern history, politics, and sociology will find immensely useful.' G. Owens, Choice

`Hart writes with sensitivity, sociological insight and, when necessary, controlled passion ... An instant classic.' Roy Foster, Spectator

`Peter Hart has produced a study which, for exploitation of sources and for disciplined and multifaceted analysis, stands comparison with Charles Townshend's The British Campaign in Ireland 1919-1921 (1975) ... he has set a standard of forensic documentary research which other historians, whether those preparing local studies of the Irish revolution, or those rushing to the defence of the good name of Cork Republicanism, may conceivably emulate but will surely not surpass.' Eunan O'Halpin, Times Literary Supplement

`remarkable and frightening book ... This is a work of meticulous scholarship based on detailed examination of original sources, as well as oral testimony from survivors. But it is also one of those books that illuminate a much wider area than their seemingly narrow confines ... eye-opening for anyone who still believes in "cossetting" - or in non-sectarian republicanism.' Geoffrey Wheatcroft, New Statesman and Society

`a very worthy successor to his brilliant dissection of the Cork campaign' Books of the Year, Steven King for Irish Independent

`magnificent first book ... Combining rigorous statistical research with passionate and beautiful writing, Peter Hart has produced a superb book which deserves nothing but the highest praise.' Ben Novick, History

`This is a superb book, offering a collection of essays by Peter Hart, Canada Research Chair of Irish Studies at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, which examines key aspects of the process of revolution that took place in Ireland during the period from 1916 to 1923.' History
