Ideology and the Irish Question

Ulster Unionism and Irish Nationalism 1912-1916

Paul Bew

Clarendon Press

  • 'Paul Bew's scintillating new book . . . as inventive and forceful as anything he has written . . . Ideology and the Irish Question begins with an eloquent plea against "partitionist history". His eventual achievement is to demonstrate why such a thing developed. In all this, it is a timely as well as a deeply impressive book.' Roy Foster, Irish Political Studies
  • 'This short book ought to be required reading for teachers of history at all levels and the general reader alike. . . . the study of the decline of Home Rule has rarely been analysed by scholars in an inclusive, all-Ireland context. . . . This thought-provoking work is essential reading.' Dermot Keogh, The Irish Times
  • 'The book, which is a small treasure trove of facts and argument on the period, is perhaps at its best in its examination in depth of the position of the last constitutional nationalist of that period, John Redmond.' The Times Literary Supplement
