Item description for Liam Mellows and the Irish Revolution by Gerry Adams C. Desmond Greaves...
Regarded as a key source for understanding the turbulent years during the partition of Ireland, and with a new introduction by Gerry Adams, this fascinating biography examines the period of modern Irish History from 1916 to 1922 in this account of the life of Liam Mellows. One of the most radical and intellectually questioning of the political leaders at the time, Mellows was the personification of the realism and romance of the Irish struggle. The story of the Easter uprising and the partition of Ireland are seen through the lens of this charismatic figure, encapsulating many of the key themes of the times. This biography illustrates the ways in which class and nationalism intersect in Irish politics, both then and now.
