In this exciting new history John Dorney aims to tell the story of the Irish revolution in an interesting and accessible way to the general reader and to try to explain the causes, course and results of the revolution in an engaging way. Accessible throughout, Peace after the Final Battle 1913-1923 tells the 'big picture' history through the eyes of individual participants. Two things make this book different from others on the subject: most popular history books lack real depth of information and cogent analysis of the period, especially on the civil war. Peace after the Final Battle 1913-1923 aims to provide as much of the 'full story' as possible. Academic books on the other hand can often be bogged down by personal disputes over details between historians and/or be too dense and detailed to engage the interest of the average reader. This book is both intellectually satisfying and a good read.

Seventeenth-century Europe was a theatre of almost endless rivalry and destruction, where wars of religion and dynastic succession caused devastation. Kingdom Overthrown: The Battle for Ireland, 1688-1691 is a fresh narrative account of the Williamite War, wherein Ireland became an unexpected stage in this European struggle. To the Irish officers who served in both armies, it was a fight for control of land, property, and influence. It was also part of a pan-European war that would have consequences across the continent; it saw the last ever confrontation on a battlefield between two claimants to the English throne, featuring many intense clashes including the siege of Derry and the battles of Aughrim and the Boyne. Providing the necessary historical context following Charles II's rise to power, the book then charts the central phase of the war, details the Williamite victory in Ireland, and outlines the social, political, and cultural consequences of the war. First-hand accounts of the soldiers and officers in both armies - collected from historical manuscript collections, copies of correspondence, and personal memoirs - give life and color to the narrative. Kingdom Overthrown is an accurate and human account of the most destructive conflict ever fought in Ireland. [Subject: History, Irish Studies, Military Studies]

The Brexit vote for UK withdrawal from the EU has put the constitutional future of Northern Ireland centre-stage once again. Beyond the Border is an authoritative, timely and up-to-date guide to the provisions of the Good Friday Agreement. A compelling and accessible exploration of how the Agreement can be upheld despite Brexit uncertainties, and implemented despite political deadlock, it powerfully argues for the permanence of the Agreement and its cross-community approach, even in the event of the achievement of Irish unity. It comprehensively explains the radical implications of the principle of parity of esteem between the traditions and how the conflicting aspirations of nationalists and unionists can be accommodated. At a time of seismic constitutional transition it outlines the milestones on the pathway to a united Ireland by consent as envisaged by the Agreement. The Good Friday Agreement was endorsed by 71 per cent of voters in Northern Ireland and by 94 per cent in the rest of Ireland. Despite huge difficulties in implementation, this book contends that the Agreement remains a cornerstone of Ireland’s constitutional settlement. Beyond the Border is a vital and objective exploration of how the Agreement provides a peaceful path towards resolving Ireland’s ultimate constitutional dilemma.
