Ireland, the Great War, and the Geography of Remembrance

Synopsis

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.
