The Atlas of the Irish Revolution draws together existing and ongoing new research into the revolutionary period in a broad ranging and inclusive manner. It includes contributions from leading scholars across a range of disciplines, incorporating the 'big issues' - such as gender, class, community, religion and ethnicity, the nature of violence, periodization and the geography of revolution - while also maintaining a close focus on events as they impacted at a local level. The analysis of conditions in the provinces, counties and parishes tells the stories of particular individuals and families caught up in the events of these years. The spatial/cartographic emphasis required the production of a range of new data that is represented locally, regionally, nationally (across the thirty-two counties) and internationally; this adds an important new dimension to our understanding of the period and to the historical geography of the revolutionary years. The Atlas also includes sections on the evolution of revolution, and on its aftermath, legacy and the collective memory and cultural representation of this fascinating, transformative period of Irish history.

A chronologically and thematically organised treatment of the period will form the core of the atlas, but the political, military, social, cultural and economic roots of the revolution, as well as its short-, medium- and long-term impacts on Irish life will also be analysed and mapped. The visualisation of the period will be enhanced by the extensive use of archival documents, photographs and paintings. These images will help bring the period to life for a broad audience - academic, school students and the general public. As well as reflecting existing scholarship, the new material will also serve as a resource and impetus for further research and scholarship.

Atlas of the Irish Revolution September 1, 2017
Reviewer: Mic Moroney, Irish Arts Review from Dublin, Ireland  
The Atlas of the Irish Revolution, a 5kg 984 page tome from Cork University Press that looks to become another benchmark reference, like their 2012 Atlas of the Great Irish Famine which sold over 20 000 copies. Yet another exhilarating CUP Gesamtkunstwerk of historical geography

Atlas of the Irish Revolution August 31, 2017
Reviewer: Joe Duffy RTE from Dublin, Ireland  
The book of the year has just been published. President Higgins has described the Atlas of the Irish Revolution as a "scholarly masterpiece”. Published by Cork University Press, it weighs in at 5kg, with just under 1000 pages, 364 maps, more than 700 beautiful illustrations and 20 tables. It is a breath-taking volume that will endure for centuries. I am proud to have been asked to write the chapter on the child casualties of the Easter Rising. Check it out at your local bookshop. I promise it will be a revelation. – Joe Duffy RTE Irish Mail on Sunday

Atlas of the Irish Revolution January 20, 2017
Reviewer: Professor Senia Pašeta from UK  
This volume makes an important and innovative contribution to our understanding of the Irish Revolution. Unusually broad and genuinely interdisciplinary, it combines a number of approaches to produce fascinating insights into this formative period of Irish history. Analysis of the comprehensive political and social changes which shaped modern Ireland is balanced with close studies of the often unspectacular, local and everyday aspects of ordinary Irish life. The result is a rich and evocative telling of many of the stories which contributed to the evolution of modern Ireland.
Senia Pašeta, Professor of Modern History, University of Oxford

Atlas of the Irish Revolution January 20, 2017
Reviewer: Dr John Bowman, Historian & Broadcaster from Ireland  
Perhaps the most ambitious of the highly original Atlas series from Cork University Press. The latest scholarship – and from many diverse viewpoints – places the Irish revolution in its international context. Accessible, readable and brilliantly produced with telling use of photographs and maps, few readers will finish this book without fresh understandings of the forces which shaped modern Ireland – outstanding.
