Format: Paperback
I didn't realise until I was half-way through that this book was actually written 25 years ago so it doesn't cover the changes that have taken place in the Irish political scene in the '80s and '90s. A comment about "a rich folkore concerning petty patronage and ... irregular allocations of public housing and planning permission" in post-independence local politics made me laugh given the public revelations of the last 10 years.
Despite all of this the book is still current and it's insight into the genealogy of nationalist political movements in Ireland since the late 18th century was very interesting. While it's not exactly an in-depth history of Irish nationalism, it does give you a clear idea of how the organisation and aims of earlier movements fed into later ones.
One word of warning though, Garvin relies heavily on statistical analysis to back up his points and you can be left a little lost trying to understand his arguments if you don't know what "lagged correlations" and "zero-order correlations" are.
