Summary "’This book is a fresh and exciting look at Irish radicalism in the early twentieth century, which puts the labour movement at the centre of socialist agitation and adds immensely to our understanding of the era’, Brian Hanley, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool, co-author of The lost revolution: the story of the Official IRA and the Workers’ Party (2009). ’Grant’s book takes a fresh and stimulating approach to the politics of the labour movement and republicanism in early twentieth-century Ireland. A useful, provocative and engaging study, it should be read by all those with an interest in the history of social radicalism on this island’, Fintan Lane, author of The origins of modern Irish socialism, 1818-1896 (2007). This book examines Irish socialist republicanism in the early part of the 20th century. Previous studies of the subject have pointed to the left wing of the IRA as the prime instigator of the movement. Here, socialist republicanism is examined in detail from the perspective of the Labour movement alongside the IRA and other republican groups for the first time. The result is an enlightening account of the many connections and alliances that existed between republicans, socialists, communists and others. The reader is provided with a narrative that explains the many twists and turns in both mainstream and radical Irish politics in the period."--Publisher’s website.
