Conflict and Conciliation in Ireland 1890-1910

Parnellites and Radical Agrarians

Paul Bew

A Clarendon Press Publication

This book explores the dilemma of Irish constitutional nationalism from the fall of Parnell to the rise of Sinn Fein, when the two competing wings--conciliators and militants--struggled bitterly for control of the movement. The author shows that while the advocates of conciliation took a peaceful path, the supporters of militancy stressed the need for vigilance and strict maintenance of Catholic nationalist tradition.
