The emergency : neutral Ireland 1939-45 by Brian Girvin( Book )

On 2 May 1945, the prime minister of Ireland, Eamon de Valera, dramatically signalled his distance from democratic Europe in a most uncompromising fashion when he paid a formal and very public visit to the German minister in Ireland, Dr Eduard Hempel, to offer his condolences on behalf of the Irish government on the death of Hitler. Taking this remarkable event as his starting point, and drawing on new sources and recent scholarship, Brian Girvin tells the story of what in Ireland is known as 'The Emergency' but elsewhere as the Second World War." "To the endless frustration and anger of Churchill - and later Roosevelt - de Valera pursued an isolationist policy that changed the course of Irish domestic policy and foreign politics. In this history, Girvin shows how this policy went against the national interest, and far from being the only option for the Government, was simply the only one they would consider. This decision, Girvin concludes, cost de Valera his ultimate prize : a united Ireland."--BOOK JACKET

From union to union : nationalism, democracy and religion in Ireland- act of union to EU by Brian Girvin( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its halcyon years, Irish nationalism was a model for the rest of the world. Why then were the practical achievements of early nationalist self-governments so paltry, collapsing in the economic and social disaster of the 1950s?" "Girvin identifies the following key points. First, religion was vital. The Old United Kingdom was a pan-Protestant state, which was why Protestant Wales and Scotland could find a place in it and Catholic Ireland could not. Second, Catholic nationalism could not accommodate Ulster Protestantism: it left the unstable sectarian cockpit of Northern Ireland to its own devices despite all the rhetoric about unity. Third, Irish nationalism ironically learned its core values of democracy and representative government from Westminster, a benign cultural legacy of the British presence. Fourth, nationalism was a political success but an economic failure. The yielding of some sovereignty in a EU context has been vital to Irish prosperity."--Jacket
Continuity, change and crisis in contemporary Ireland by Brian Girvin( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this book is to analyse from a number of perspectives the politics of change in Ireland north and south since 1969. The emergence of the troubles in Northern Ireland, the final push to gain entry to the EEC, changing social mores and severe economic difficulties all begin to appear on the horizon at this stage. While considerable change and, indeed, moments of extreme crisis, have taken place in areas such as Northern Ireland, the economy, moral politics, and Ireland's attitude towards the European Union, continuity has also been a significant hallmark of Irish politics since 1
