9780863222573: The Irish Constabularies, 1822 - 1922: A century of policing in Ireland

This first account of the Irish constabularies is a major contribution to Irish historical studies.
From the Constabulary Act of 1822 and the organisation of the County Constabulary, the story moves through the difficult and turbulent decades of the Famine, 1848, the Belfast Riots and the Fenian rising, encompassing the birth of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Land War. In the later years of the nineteenth century the emphasis is on more routine police work, with the period of the growth of Irish nationalism in the early twentieth century being a peaceful time for the RIC. But as Sinn Fein and the Volunteers grew in strength, attitudes to the RIC changed and it came under sustained attack during the force's final difficult years leading to disbandment.

Book Description Brandon Books, U.S.A., 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Near-Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Very Good condition dust jacket. The book's only flaw is a handwritten gift inscription on the front pastedown. All else is spotless and completely free of wear or damage. Dust jacket is not price-clipped and is completely clean. It has light wear to the edges including a few tiny tears, the longest of which is about 1/4". "This first account of the Irish constabularies is a major contribution to Irish historical studies. Throughout the century in question policing stood at the perilous intersection of politics, religion and the relationship between Britain and Ireland. Donal J. O'Sullivan has over three decades researched this history, much of the esential material of which had been obscured by continuing political sensitivities. From the Constabulary Act of 1822 and the organisation of the County Constabulary, the story moves through the difficult and turbulent decades of the Famine, 1848, the Belfast Riots and the Fenian rising, encompassing the birth of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Land War. In the later years of the nineteenth century the emphasis is on more routine police work, with the period of the growth of Irish nationalism in the early twentieth century being a peaceful time for the RIC. But as Sinn Fein and the Volunteers grew in strength, attitudes to the RIC changed and it came under sustained attack during the force's final difficult years leading to disbandment. As Ireland approaches new constitutional arrangements and a transformation of the relationships both within the island and between Britain and Ireland, the issue of policing takes on renewed importance in Northern Ireland, making the publication of this book particularly timely." -- the publishers.
