‘Rethinking the Republic’ – redux… July 30, 2011Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, Northern Ireland, Republicanism, Sinn Féin, The Left.
A while back we marked the launch of Matt Treacy’s book ‘Rethinking the Republic’. In the interim there were various issues, but these have now been dealt with. So, for those of you who have read it here’s an additional resource with which to contextualise it, Jim Lane’s useful Miscellaneous Notes on Republicanism and Socialism in Cork City, 1954 to 1969. The accompanying article was written by Conor McCabe and provides an excellent overview.
I’d be interesting in the thoughts of those who have read Matt Treacy’s text already or would like to comment on it in the context of Jim Lane’s thoughts.
We’ll have more on ‘Rethinking the Republic’ next month. Here in the meantime is a discussion with Matt Treacy and Malachy Steenson. It provides an excellent insight into Matt’s approach and the general discussions about this period of time.
