About the book
Fifty essays. Fifty contributors. One extraordinary year.
From the handover of Dublin Castle, to the dawning of a new border across the island, to the fateful divisions of the civil war, Ireland 1922 provides a snapshot of a year of turmoil, tragedy and, amidst it all, state-building as the Irish revolution drew to a close.
Leading international scholars from different disciplines explore a turning point in Irish history; one whose legacy remains controversial a century on.
