From the 1916 Easter Rising to the consolidation of the two separate states after the Irish Civil War of 1922, the campaign for Home Rule developed from parliamentary negotation into military conflict and mass popular uprising. The results of these years remain to this day, primariliy in the form of a partitioned country. This is the first in-depth study of the militancy of working people throughout urban and rural Ireland during the period. Conor Kostick examines the impact of popular militancy on the decisions of the British authorities, how it shaped leading nationalists such as Michael Collins and its relationship with both Nationalism and Unionism.
