Civilising rural Ireland

The co-operative movement, development and the nation state, 1889-1939

First Edition

Patrick Doyle

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Makes a timely contribution to ongoing decade of centenary commemorations in Ireland (2012-2022), and places those revolutionary events into their social and economic context.
  • Demonstrates a wide appeal that extends beyond Irish history as the book provides historical context to current debates about economics, development, and political organisation.
  • The Irish co-operative movement is an important case-study that sheds light on everyday life in Ireland and the book offers a unique take on a crucial period in Ireland's history.
  • Contributes to a recent surge of interest in the role played by co-operatives in societal development and helps to set an agenda for research in the history of co-operative movements.
