Reviews

'... an impressive and ambitious collection ... it provides up to date narrative and stimulus for further reflection'. Bullan
"...by encouraging and/or assembling so much scholarship that deals productively with the complex issues of the Irish mid-century, she [Ohlmeyer] (and her contributors) have created the sense of a vital and comprehensive subject very far removed from Carlyle's impenetrable swamp. It is a commendable achievement." Albion
"A short review cannot do justice to these contributions. They all add to our knowledge of Ireland at this time, and there is no doubt that they, along with other contributions to this book, will become the foundation of all future work on the Irish civil war and its outcome." Canadian Journal of History
