Land questions in modern Ireland

Philip Bull

Manchester University Press

Philip Bull's Cambridge Ph.D dissertation (1972) was, in part, an attempt to unravel the relationship of the land issue to nationalist politics in Ireland in the period 1895 to 1904. This was a decade in which both these phenomena became unstable variables. His exploration of the historical significance of this relationship in this period developed subsequently parallel to the unfolding of the crisis in Northern Ireland and of changes in the way in which the nineteenth and twentieth century history of Ireland came to be understood. In this chapter he develops and justifies the argument that the course of events in Ireland in the 1970s and up to the present has given a new context within which the working out of the Irish land question should now be understood.
