Dr John O'Callaghan contributes to ĎAtlas of the Irish Revolution', receiving rave reviews

The publishing event of the year is taking place with the arrival in bookshops of the Atlas of the Irish Revolution (Cork University Press). Dr John O'Callaghan of the CLL has contributed two chapters and a map to this prestigious work. The Atlas is expected to be the best-selling book in Ireland this season and is already attracting a high profile. RT… Radio is devoting a series of Sunday morning programmes to mark this important scholarly event. The Atlas is in all good bookshops now! 
Broadcaster John Bowman describes it as ‘outstanding . . . accessible, readable and brilliantly produced.’
RTE’s Joe Duffy has said: ‘The book of the year has just been published. President Higgins has described the Atlas of the Irish Revolution as a "scholarly masterpiece”. Check it out at your local bookshop. I promise it will be a revelation’.

Copies of Atlas of the Irish Revolution will be available in Irish bookshops on Wednesday September 6th.

The Atlas of the Irish Revolution draws together existing and ongoing new research into the revolutionary period in a broad ranging and inclusive manner. It includes contributions from leading scholars across a range of disciplines, incorporating the 'big issues' - such as gender, class, community, religion and ethnicity, the nature of violence, periodization and the geography of revolution - while also maintaining a close focus on events as they impacted at a local level. The analysis of conditions in the provinces, counties and parishes tells the stories of particular individuals and families caught up in the events of these years. The spatial/cartographic emphasis required the production of a range of new data that is represented locally, regionally, nationally (across the thirty-two counties) and internationally; this adds an important new dimension to our understanding of the period and to the historical geography of the revolutionary years. The Atlas also includes sections on the evolution of revolution, and on its aftermath, legacy and the collective memory and cultural representation of this fascinating, transformative period of Irish history.

A chronologically and thematically organised treatment of the period will form the core of the atlas, but the political, military, social, cultural and economic roots of the revolution, as well as its short-, medium- and long-term impacts on Irish life will also be analysed and mapped. The visualisation of the period will be enhanced by the extensive use of archival documents, photographs and paintings. These images will help bring the period to life for a broad audience - academic, school students and the general public. As well as reflecting existing scholarship, the new material will also serve as a resource and impetus for further research and scholarship.
