Name: Propaganda as Anti-History

Subtitle: Peter Hart's 'The IRA and its Enemies' examined

Author: Sheridan, Owen

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 9781-903497-41-8

Contents: Because historians tell the story of humanity, we depend on them for our understanding of who and what we are. But writers of history can also distort the story, presenting their subjects, not as people, but as caricatures of good and evil. When such distortion becomes serious and deliberate, Owen Sheridan describes it as anti-history.

Using a detailed examination of The IRA and Its Enemies, Sheridan shows how writer Peter Hart removes the humanity of IRA Volunteers during the War of Independence, depicting them as the popular press in Britain depicted Germans during the First World War—as objects of hatred. His Anti-History is a wake-up call, not only for historians but for thinking people everywhere.

Owen Sheridan grew up in Country Cork, where members of his family have been local historians for several generations. Most of his adult life has been spent out of Ireland where he worked in construction and real estate. He is now retired and living in the United States. Anti-History is his second book.

Name: Puritanism And The Theatre

Subtitle:

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 2014

ISBN: ISBN: 978-1-872078-

Contents: It is not well known that the English Reformation suppressed the theatre in England, not once but twice. First there was Henry VIII's suppression of the mediaeval theatre, because traditional culture was permeated by the old religion. Miracle plays and suchlike became a form of thought-crime. Henry's absolute State required a thorough re-moulding of the populace and that included theatrical life. Half a century later the State encouraged the development of a new development of theatre, to provide entertainment for Elizabeth and her courtiers. The Stuarts who followed her also promoted a new form of theatre which flourished, and which had a marked anti-Puritan bias. Stuart (or Jacobean) theatre was anathema to the new Puritan religious development. A coup d'etat was brought about by Puritan forces in 1641. England became a rigorous Protestant theocracy and Oliver Cromwell abolished theatre for a second time. English social life came under the control of forces nowadays described as fanatical, radical or fundamentalist. Dating from this era, William Prynne's comprehensive Christian case against the theatre is described. After the Cromwellian governing arrangement ran into the ground, the Stuarts were brought back to power. With them came a new development of theatre after 1660, but only in a limited form under Government licence. In 1740 an attempt at political theatre was nipped in the bud. This is discussed in connection with Charlotte Brooke, an early translator of Irish verse, whose father wrote the banned play Gustavus Vasa. These events were described in an entertaining manner in a series of articles for The Heresiarch (Editor, Joe Keenan) which are reproduced here. Then there is a comment on Synge and Sean O'Casey, questioning a suggestion made on Radio Eireann that The Playboy and The Plough were met with hostile demonstrations because their authors were Protestants. Around the theme of Showgirls, the depiction of sex in popular discourse is considered. The overall surprising conclusion is that Puritanism abolished, along with theatre, the traditional communal medium of social life, creating a vacuum which is filled in the Anglo-sphere by an upsurge of theatre. The population lives its community life through theatrical presentations on stage, screen and air-waves.

Name: Remembering Gallipoli

Subtitle: President McAleese's Great War Crusade

Author: Walsh, Pat

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2010

ISBN: 978 1 903497 24 3

Contents: The Irish President Mrs. Mary McAleese pays an official visit to Turkey to unveil a memorial to the Irish who died in the British invasion at Gallipoli in 1915. Such a visit is an unusual departure for Ireland, given the historical perspective of the independent Irish State.

Gallipoli is quite a famous battle in Ireland and many people know that there was Irish participation in it. However, the Irish participation at Gallipoli has never been commemorated in the same way that, for example, Australians and New Zealanders have marked it. However, tours organized from Ireland, to coincide with the visit of Mrs. McAleese, have advertised themselves as 'The Gallipoli Pilgrimage'—a phrase with religious meaning, borrowed from previous Australian commemorations.

There is a view in Australia that their participation in the Gallipoli landings was a major milestone in the forging of the Australian nation. Paul Keating, the former Premier, caused something of a controversy a few years ago when he dissented from this view and remarked:

"Gallipoli was shocking for us… Dragged into service by the imperial government in an ill-conceived and poorly executed campaign, we were cut to ribbons and dispatched. In some respects we are still at it; not at the suffering and the dying, but still turning up at Gallipoli… we still go on as though the nation was born again or even was redeemed there. This is utter and complete nonsense. For these reasons I have never been to Gallipoli and I never will" (The Age, October 31, 2008).

Whether Australia was born at Gallipoli or not, the same cannot be said of Ireland and the Irish participation in the assault on Turkey......
