A Nation and not a Rabble

Packed with violence, political drama and social and cultural upheaval, the years 1913-23 were full of revolution and unrest in Ireland. Drawing on an abundance of newly released archival material, witness statements and testimony from the ordinary Irish people who lived and fought through some extraordinary times, the book gives a new account of those years.
