William Drennan played an active part in the Irish Volunteer movement in the 1780s; and in the campaign of the Protestant interest in Ireland against the passing of the Act of Union during the years after the suppression of the 1798 Rebellion. The first volume contains his most influential pamphlet, the Letters of Orellana, published in 1784 for the purpose of re-invigorating the reform movement of the Volunteers, which was then at a low ebb. Also included are Drennan’s letters to William Bruce, in which the United Irish movement is foreshadowed; and a selection from the letters exchanged between Drennan, his sister Martha, and her husband, Sam M’Tier. Most of the 200 items in this section are appearing in print for the first time. A number of poems written by Drennan round out this book.

Garvin-1922 Garvin, Tom. 1922. The Birth of Irish Democracy. Dublin, Gill & Macmillan, 1996. 21.5cm x 13.5cm. xii, 240 pages. Original illustrated softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Minor marking on page 1.

Includes for example the following chapters: Democracy, Republicanism, and Nationalism/ Revolution and Democracy in Ireland 1913-23/ The Dail Government and Local Democracy, 1919-23/ The Creation of a Democratic Public Order, 1922-23/ Irish Political Culture and the Emergence of the Irish Free State/ State-Building after the Treaty/ The Prospects for Democracy and the Irish Experience etc.

This book examines the birth of the Irish state and sets it in its European historical context. The process of democratic nation-making reached full fruition while a vicious civil war was raging, ostensibly fought over points of political principle but actually deciding whether Ireland was to be ruled by popular majority will or by a virtuous but unaccountable minority. Garvin argues that militant republicanism always lacked popular, democratic legitimacy. The mainstream Irish nationalist tradition was moderate and realistic, and it was this nation-building tradition that triumphed in 1922. The stability and good order of the Irish state owes much to this victory. In particular, because the democratic impulse in Irish life overcame the cult of the virtuous minority, Ireland did not go the way of so many other newly emerging European states. There were to be no military dictators or fascist interludes; instead, there evolved a stable democracy which eventually came to include most of those defeated in 1922.

Theobald Wolfe Tone, posthumously known as Wolfe Tone (20 June 1763 – 19 November 1798), was a leading Irish revolutionary figure and one of the founding members of the United Irishmen and is regarded as the father of Irish republicanism. He was captured by British forces at Lough Swilly in Donegal and taken prisoner. Before he was to be executed, it is believed that Wolfe Tone attempted suicide. He subsequently died from mortal wounds eight days afterwards, thus avoiding being hanged as a convicted traitor to the British Crown for his involvement in the 1798 Irish Rebellion. (Wikipedia).
