The Atlas of the Irish Revolution is a landmark publication that presents scholarship on the revolutionary period in a uniquely accessible manner.
Featuring over 200 original maps and 300 images, the Atlas includes 120 contributions by leading scholars from a range of disciplines. They offer multiple perspectives on the pivotal years from the 1912 Home Rule crisis to the end of the Irish Civil War in 1923. Using extensive original data (much of it generated from newly-released archival material), researchers have mapped social and demographic change, political and cultural activity, state and non-state violence and economic impacts. The maps also portray underlying trends in the decades before the revolution and capture key aspects of the revolutionary aftermath.

They show that while the Irish revolution was a 'national' event, it contained important local and regional variations that were vital to its outcomes. The representation of island-wide trends stand alongside street-level, parish, county and provincial studies that uncover the multi-faceted dynamics at play.

The Atlas also captures the international dimensions of a revolution that occurred amidst the First World War and its tumultuous aftermath.

Revolutionary events in Ireland received global attention because they profoundly challenged the British imperial project. Key revolutionaries operated transnationally before, during and after the conflict, while the Irish diaspora provided crucial support networks. The often neglected roles of women and workers are illuminated, while commentators consider the legacies of the revolution, including collective memories, cultural representations and historical interpretations.

The Atlas of the Irish Revolution brings history to life for general readers and students, as well as academics. It represents a ground-breaking contribution to the historicalgeography of these compelling years of conflict, continuity and change.

This book magnificently dissects the Irish revolution of 1913-23, layer by layer by layer. The words landmark and groundbreaking are much overused by publishers, but Cork University Press is much justified in employing those descriptions to trumpet this mammoth production, in all its glory…”

Diarmaid Ferriter (16/9/17), The Irish Times

“The Atlas of the Irish Revolution collects all the best scholars of the period in one definitive, weighty tome. It is a book that no revolution should be without”

Colm Tóibín (9/12/17) , The Irish Times

“It is tremendously helpful and stimulating for academics, and accessible for students and others. In a historiographical field marred, and sometimes characterised, by sectarianism and mythmaking, it is rewarding to see this work produced as a collection by over 100 scholars.”

Jeremy Black, Journal of European Studies, 2018
