Summary
"This volume concentrates on aspects of commemoration in Ireland. It examine how commemoration reaffirms and reinterprets Ireland's changing identity. Is it divisive or uniting? Did the commemorations of the Famine, for example, merely serve to stir up old grievances? Is commemoration used as a tool to sharpen our awareness of the past and its impact on the present? The bicentennial celebrations of 1998 invoked a spirit of idealism and inclusiveness which suited the peace process and the Belfast Agreement, but they downplayed the savagery, mayhem and failure of the 1798 rebellion. Does commemoration assert sectarian culture or transcend it? Is there too much commemoration going on? A group of distinguished cultural historians and political scientists attempt to answer these questions by studying pivotal events in Ireland's history in an international comparative context."--BOOK JACKET
