The practice of terror in revolutionary Ireland remains a highly controversial topic, which seldom receives balanced and dispassionate treatment. This collection of essays in memory of Peter Hart (1963-2010), by Brian Hanley, Anne Dolan, Eunan O'Halpin, Jane Leonard, Thomas Earls FitzGerald and others, illuminates the origins, forms and consequences of terror, whether perpetrated by republicans or government forces. It is the fifth production of the Trinity History Workshop, an informal group of academic historians, research students, and undergraduates associated with Trinity College Dublin. Anybody interested in the Irish Revolution will find provocation and enlightenment in this book. Its purpose is not to assign blame, but to offer multiple perspectives on one of the most contentious periods of Irish history.
