Product description

Review

Review from previous edition McGarry brings us close to the terrifying and exhilarating experience that was 1916. He seamlessly weaves together these richly evocative witnesses with current historiography and narrative. (America Magazine)

Beautifully produced. (Mary E. Daly, The Irish Times)

The Rising not only provides a lucid explanation of what happened in 1916, it also gives us the best account yet of what it was like to be there: with Pearse and Connolly in the GPO, under de Valera's command defending Mount Street Bridge, or just suffering through it all as a helpless civilian. Fearghal McGarry has a keen biographer's eye for human detail and uses it here to weave together the myriad stories of the Easter rebellion. (Peter Hart, author of The I.R.A. at War)

A vivid and compelling narrative that explores the thoughts, fears, and motivations of the revolutionaries in this seminal event. (The Boston Globe)

'The Rising' offers invaluable insights into the insurrection from ground level. (The Boston Globe)

McGarry offers a poignant mosaic of idealism, bravery, and humanity. (The Boston Globe)

'The Rising' is rich with tales of the acts of ordinary Dubliners. (The Boston Globe)

The novelty of the book lies in its perspective. (America)

A very readable, yet historically important book that will appeal to general readers and to experts. (Mary E. Daly, The Irish Times)

judicious and compelling (Alvin Jackson, The Journal of Modern History)
