Quick OverviewThis book brings together a collection of previously unseen family papers and writings from Ireland’s greatest modern revolutionary.
Profusely illustrated with original documents and photographs, and with specially commissioned artwork, The Re-Conquest of Ireland explores Connolly’s conception of nationhood, its loss and the continuing quest for social justice.
It reproduces the manuscript of his last major work, together with a range of other documents that shed fresh light upon his re-envisioning of Irish history and culture, the struggle for women’s rights and the fight to achieve an independent and avowedly Socialist Ireland.
DetailsThrough original documents and photographs, James Connolly and The Re-Conquest Of Ireland provides the first critical reappraisal of Connolly’s last major work.
