James Connolly and the Re-Conquest of Ireland
Through original documents and photographs, James Connolly and The Re-Conquest Of Ireland provides the first critical reappraisal of Connolly's last major work.
Set against a backdrop of strikes, increasing sectarian tensions, and the outbreak of the Great War; The Re-Conquest shows Ireland's greatest modern revolutionary grappling with questions of nationhood, women's rights, and political and economic democracy that still have enormous resonance for the politics of today.
This profusely illustrated new edition of a seminal work brings together a collection of previously unseen family papers and writings in a highly engaging, approachable and original manner.
This edition includes forewords by Bob Crow and Paul Kenny.
