Book launch: Atlas of the Irish Revolution

Just like its sister title Atlas of the Great Irish Famine, Cork University Press's newly published Atlas of the Irish Revolution is a whopper! dimensions are 299x237 (12"x10" to my generation); it has 994 pages, 364 maps, more than 700 illustrations and 20 tables; and weighs in at a hefty 5kg.

It is also huge in scholarship. Edited by John Crowley, Donal O Drisceoil, Mike Murphy and John Borgonovo, the Atlas of the Irish Revolution brings together existing and ongoing new research into the revolutionary era in a broad ranging and inclusive manner. It includes contributions from leading scholars across a range of disciplines and explores the period from many diverse viewpoints and places it in its international context.

Beautifully presented and produced, this book makes the history it tells accessible to all.

Read Professor Diarmaid Ferriter's review in the Irish Times for more information.

The book is available from Kenny's, Amazon, Cork University Press, Easons and other good booksellers. Typical price €59.
