Past and present : history, identity, and politics in Ireland by Brian Mercer Walker( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author of Dancing to History's Tune develops here some of the themes first explored in that book. In challenging the view that the past is of special importance in Ireland he argues that the strong sense of history which many communities draw on is influenced as much by contemporary events and changing political conditions as by any immutable links to the past." "The book takes a fresh look at how the siege of Derry, a significant event for unionists, has been celebrated over the last three centuries and assesses how the 1798 rebellion, an important episode for nationalists and republicans, has been remembered. He examines changes in historical perceptions and senses of identity as revealed in the commemoration of St. Patrick's Day, the Twelfth of July, the Easter Rising and Armistice Day in the period 1920-60. A final chapter explores how ideas of history have influenced the conflict in Northern Ireland."--BOOK JACKET
