This book is part of a continuing series on the subject of Protestant dissent in Ireland and based on papers originally presented at the third annual conference held at Marsh's Library in Dublin. The current volume is divided into four parts. Part one deals with an historical interpretation of Irish history in regard to dissent and governmental authority in the 18th century. In part two there are four chapters addressing various aspects of the political relationship of dissenters to legal statute and different governmental administrations in Ireland. The third part looks at John Wesley's political attitudes. The last part provides a select document relevant to this study.

GRIFFITH, Arthur (Introduction by Patrick Murray).
University College Dublin Press, 2003 (reprint). First published 1904. xxxii, 170 pages. Paperback.
"The case of Ireland is as nearly as possible parallel to the case of Hungary" - William Smith O'Brien. The Resurrection of Hungary, first published in 1904 and twice reprinted, strongly influenced nationalist debate between 1904 and 1921. Its central proposal - the withdrawal of Irish elected representatives from Westminster - was inherited from the Hungarian Franz Deak's policy of non co-operation with the Imperial parliament in Vienna in the 1860s. The idea of the dual monarchy, adopted by Austria and Hungary in 1867 in which each recognised the Austrian Emperor but had separate parliaments, continued to be advocated by a few Irish politicians in the 1920s. Griffith also expounds here his protectionist economic views which influenced Irish government policy for several decades. Arthur Griffith (1872-1922) was a journalist and politician. He founded Sinn Fein in 1905, and at the time of his sudden death was President of Dail Eireann. (reprint).

Fatal Influence places the settlement of the Irish Question in the 1920s within the broader context of a revolution then taking place in British politics and shows how each affected the other. In a finely detailed investigation, he explores the Irish partition and the often-conflicting motives that led to this momentous decision. Far from solving the Irish Question, dividing the country into two parts merely created what one politician at the time called its 'elements of dynamite'. These explosive elements were thrown into an already unstable political situation in Britain, with three political parties - Liberals, Conservatives, and Labour - all vying for a place in that nation's traditional two-party system. This book brings together some of the most colourful characters of twentieth-century British and Irish history, from Winston Churchill and Michael Collins to David Lloyd George and Eamon de Valera. Looming behind is Sir James Craig, the rock-like embodiment of Ulster Unionism. But this story of 'high politics' also involves men whose careers are not normally associated with the Irish conflict, figures such as Stanley Baldwin, Ramsay MacDonald, Neville Chamberlain and, even, Oswald Mosley and Anthony Eden.

In the summer of 1948 the Taoiseach, John Costello, announced to the world press--without consulting his cabinet--that his government intended to 'ditch' Eire's last remaining constitutional link with the British Commonwealth. Why? Was it a calculated political move or an impulsive outburst spurred on by newspaper comments and the 'Roaring Meg' incident in Canada? Newly available research material from American, British, Canadian and Irish archives provides answers to these controversial questions. The formulation of the British government's response, which took the form of the 'guarantee' on Partition to the Parliament of Northern Ireland, is set within the context of the formation of NATO and Eire's subsequent 'refusal' to join the alliance. The book shows how the perennial problem of Partition permeated and debilitated the Coalition government itself and in its diplomatic discussions with Britain, the Commonwealth, America and the NATO powers. As background the book reviews Anglo-Irish constitutional developments from 1932 until 1949, particularly the abdication of King Edward VIII and the introduction of the External Relations Act 1936.

In June 2004, Carole Coleman made world headlines when she interviewed President George Bush on live television, challenging him on the war in Iraq in a way that few journalists had done. This book begins with an account of that interview and its aftermath. But Alleluia America! goes beyond that, travelling deep into Bush's America, meeting many ordinary (and extraordinary) people. Carole Coleman's journey takes her from Washington DC to Monroe, Georgia from Annapolis to Delia, Kansas from Salt Lake City to Intercourse, Pennsylvania and from Midland, Texas to Guantanamo Bay. Along the way, she meets Baptists, Evangelical Christians, Catholics, Mormons, Amish, Jews, Muslims, and many shades between, and discovers that religion is far from a spent force, but has become the driving power that motivates people's lives, a wave that carried George W. Bush to a second term as US President. Poignant, amusing and insightful, Alleluia America! provides a rare and fascinating outsider's glimpse into the heart of God's Country.

Irish historians have not been kind to Henry Cooke (the Black Man). Some have described him as a fiery demagogue some as a canting hypocrite who imported violent anti-Catholicism from his native Derry into Belfast and others as a man determined to establish the perpetual dominance of the Protestants in Ireland. But, as Andrew Boyd explains in Montgomery and the Black Man, Henry Cooke was not the lone bigot that so many imagine him to have been. His anti-Catholic demonstrations in Belfast were often part of much wider demonstrations throughout the whole of the United Kingdom. Anti-Catholicism was a dominant feature in the politics and theology of Victorian England. Henry Cooke was undoubtedly a highly influential and eloquent enemy of the Catholic Church. Yet he might well have been a doctor of medicine, a scientist or a professor of literature had he not chosen to be a Presbyterian minister. He was above all never afraid to confront those whom he believed to be his enemies. Montgomery and the Black Man deals with both Henry Cooke and his rival Henry Montgomery and claims that neither of those two eminent Victorian clergymen were exactly what popular tradition has so far assumed them to be.
