"For the Cause of Liberty is the story of Irish nationalism, from the legendary king Brian Boru, who united the chieftains of Ireland to drive out the Vikings, to the still-unresolved conflict in Northern Ireland. In a fast-paced narrative, Terry Golway tells a thousand years of Irish history, describing the achievements of the patriots who kept alive the dream of Irish freedom until they finally succeeded." "Among the stories - some famous, some little-known - are those of Wolfe Tone, a leader of the 1798 rebellion who cut his own throat rather than submit to a hangman; Kevin Barry, executed at age eighteen rather than turn informer on the eve of independence in 1921; Bobby Sands, an IRA militant who died on a hunger strike in 1981 that called international attention to the conflict in Northern Ireland; and several remarkable women who played pivotal roles in Irish history, among them Anna Parnell, Countess Markievicz, and Bernadette Devlin." "For the Cause of Liberty reveals that the struggle for Irish freedom was not a strictly religious dispute; in fact, many of the greatest heroes of the nationalist movement were Protestants, some of them descended only a few generations from English settlers. Terry Golway also reminds us that the United States played a role in this drama, especially after the heavy Irish immigration in the mid-1800s. (Eamon de Valera, who dominated Irish politics in the twentieth century, was born in the United States.)"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

For the Cause of Liberty: A Thousand Years of Ireland's Heroes af Terry Golway (2000)

  1. 00
    The Green Flag [3-volume set] af Robert Kee (waltzmn)
    waltzmn: It is almost impossible to write an unbiased history of Anglo-Irish relations. To write a readable, accurate history is even harder. I know of none better than Robert Kee's. It necessarily leaves out much, and there are disputes over events which it does not touch. But, on the whole, it is a clear, fair, accessible work.… (mere)
