Drawing on participant and eyewitness accounts, diaries, and newspaper reports, Clair Wills recreates the harrowing moments that transformed the GPO from an emblem of nineteenth-century British power and civil government, to an embattled barricade, and finally to a national symbol."--Inside jacket.

In light of its upcoming centenary in 2016, the time seems ripe to ask: why, how and in what ways has memory of Ireland’s 1916 Rising persisted over the decades? In pursuing answers to these questions, which are not only of historical concern, but of contemporary political and cultural importance, this book breaks new ground by offering a wide-ranging exploration of the making and remembrance of the story of 1916 in modern times. It draws together the interlocking dimensions of history-making, commemoration and heritage to reveal the Rising’s undeniable influence upon modern Ireland’s evolution, both instantaneous and long-term. In addition to furnishing a history of the tumultuous events of Easter 1916, which rattled the British Empire’s foundations and enthused independence movements elsewhere, Ireland’s 1916 Rising mainly concentrates on illuminating the evolving relationship between the Irish past and present. In doing so, it unearths the far-reaching political impacts and deep-seated cultural legacies of the actions taken by the rebels, as evidenced by the most pivotal episodes in the Rising’s commemoration and the myriad varieties of heritage associated with its memory. This volume also presents a wider perspective on the ways in which conceptualisations of heritage, culture and identity in Westernised societies are shaped by continuities and changes in politics, society and economy. In a topical conclusion, the book examines the legacy of Queen Elizabeth II’s visit to the Garden of Remembrance in 2011, and looks to the Rising’s 100th anniversary by identifying the common ground that can be found in pluralist and reconciliatory approaches to remembrance.

Five Irish republican women conducted lecture tours in the United States from 1916 to 1925: Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington, Mary MacSwiney, Mrs. Muriel MacSwiney, Countess Constance Markievicz and Mrs. Margaret Pearse. Each tour involved fundraising, but the primary goal was to educate and inform Americans, particularly Irish-Americans, about the injustices of British rule in Ireland. This book examines their lecture tours in depth: the circumstances, often controversial, of each tour; the many people the women encountered, including the leading political figures of the day such as President Woodrow Wilson; transcripts of their speeches; the reaction of the American public; the politics surrounding the tour; the press coverage and the impact of the tour. Drawing on their letters, their speeches, press reports, and accounts of the strong impressions the women left on their American audiences, the author paints a vivid and personal portrait of each woman. The political astuteness and success of Irish republican women during this period far surpassed the achievements of their sisters in other parts of the world. This book celebrates the heroism, conviction and enormous self-sacrifice of these women, who left their family and friends in a war-torn Ireland to further the cause of freedom for their country.
