About the Authors
  • The Irish experience of the Great War, and its commemoration, is the setting for Nuala Johnson's pioneering examination of "the landscape of the national imaginery". Her study represents a major contribution to cultural geography and to the historiography of remembrance. The book combines theoretical perspectives with original primary research revealing how memory literally occurred in post-1918 Ireland, and the various conflicts and struggles that were both cause and effect of the process.

    • A powerful investigation of memory and place in twentieth-century Ireland by an acclaimed young Irish geographer
    • Enormous contemporary resonance, as many of the issues discussed still dominate Irish affairs (both North and South) today
    • Provides an important theoretical and methodological perspective
