Disunited Kingdom? by Christine Kinealy

Book Description

When did the United Kingdom come into being? What were the steps which led to its conception? Was the creation of the United Kingdom a symptom of national coherence or of disunity between the countries that made up the union? Did a new national identity come into being after 1801, or did old allegiances and loyalties become more deeply embedded? Is the eventual breakup of the re-constituted United Kingdom inevitable? In seeking answers to these questions, and explaining how the United Kingdom has evolved, the author explores a number of key themes including:the steps to political union,economic change, religion, education, social welfare, war and national identity.

Daniel O'Connell and the Anti-Slavery Movement by Christine Kinealy Daniel O'Connell and the Anti-Slavery Movement, Paperback (January 2016)

Previous histories on O'Connell have dealt predominantly with his attempts to secure a repeal of the 1800 Act of Union and on his success in achieving Catholic Emancipation in 1829, Kinealy focuses instead on the neglected issue of O'Connell's contribution to the anti-slavery movement in the United States.

Apparitions of Death and Disease by Christine Kinealy Apparitions of Death and Disease, Paperback (March 2015)

Christine Kinealy provides a chronology of the Famine and examines the causes and consequences of this tragedy, and asks how could a famine of this magnitude occur at the centre of the British Empire? Why did Ireland starve?

Irish by Christine Kinealy Irish, Paperback (March 2013)

The first Irish photographs date from 1840, a year after Louis Daguerre announced to the world his discovery of the photographic process. In the century that followed, Irish political life was dominated by the struggle for land rights, for Home Rule, and for independence. This book covers the first century of Ireland in the era of photography.
