Name: Iraq: Blair's Big Lie Confirmed

Subtitle:

Author: Morrison, David

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2005

ISBN: 1 874463 40 9

Contents: Second edition with Foreword by George Galloway MP, in which he says: "David Morrison is one of the most forensic but unsung writers in these islands. He has consistently tracked down the facts and unmasked the lies in New Labour's propaganda." This pamphlet shows how, in the months leading up to the invasion of Iraq, the Prime Minister continually stated that his objective was the disarmament of Iraq as laid down in Security Council resolutions, and not regime change. In fact, a year earlier, he had already offered his wholehearted support to President Bush in the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

Name: Ireland After The End Of Western Civilisation

Subtitle:

Author: Fennell, Desmond

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2009

ISBN: 978 08034 1201

Contents: The West’s present system of rules for individual and social behaviour has replaced that of inherited European civilisation. The new system could be designated ‘post-European’. It is a utopian experiment, originating in and emanating from the USA. In many ways it is a western parallel to the Soviet experiment, which was similarly post-European in origin.

Failing to make sense to westerners as a framework for life, our system has lasted until now merely because of the constant increase of the power to buy things and do things which it has been providing to states and consumers. When that dual increase ceases, it will dissolve into social chaos, leaving the task of building the widely desired post-European civilisation to a future generation.

Those are the bare bones of Desmond Fennell’s ground-breaking account of the recent history and present condition of the western world – an account which is given pressing relevance by the West’s economic crisis. It is also the context in which - in a series of essays dated and set in the weeks leading up to the Lisbon Treaty referendum of 2008 - he discusses the referendum campaigns; the European Union; the decline of the Catholic Church; Terry Keane and Charles Haughey; Irish Times and Irish people; confusion in Dublin’s art museums; Dundrum Shopping Centre; and other matters.

Name: Ireland In The Great War

Subtitle:

Author: O'Donnell, Charles James

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: German-Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1992

ISBN: 0 85034 055 1

Contents: The establishment of a sovereign state in Ireland occurred as a direct consequence of Irish participation in Britain's war on Germany which was launched in August 1914. Nationalist Ireland was in 1914 in process of being secured as a region of the United Kingdom and the Empire under the form of Home Rule. The Nationalist leaders joined with the Unionists in giving unquestioning support to Britain's war against Germany, Austria and Turkey. The alliance of Britain, France and Russia failed to achieve the rapid victory which its great superiority of men and arms had caused it to anticipate. The prolongation of the war and the unprecedented scale of the casualties created the conditions in which nationalists opposed to the British war effort, many of them in sympathy with Germany, organised the Insurrection of 1916, which caused a fundamental change in the dynamic of Irish affairs. Despite this intimate connection between the Great War and the Easter Rising, no history of the War from an Irish viewpoint has been published for half a century—not since Charles James O'Donnell's "The Irish Future And The Lordship Of The World" in the 1920s. O'Donnell, born in Donegal and educated in Galway, served for thirty years in the Indian Civil Service before retiring to contest the 1906 Election on an old-fashioned Liberal platform opposed both to Curzon's Tory Imperialism and Asquith's Liberal Imperialism. Some Chapters from his history of the Great War are reproduced here. In an introductory chapter Brendan Clifford shows how, in the course of the Home Rule conflict (1912-14) the Home Rule movement was drawn into the web of Asquith's Liberal Imperialism, and how in August 1914 Home Rule journalists, such as T. M. Kettle, T. P. O'Connor and Robert Lynd supplied Asquith with the frenzied war propaganda which he needed. And he shows how Roger Casement and James Connolly did not act out of narrow nationalist considerations. They saw Britain's declaration of war on Germany as a barbaric attempt by a world empire in decline to destroy a civilised and progressive European state, and acted accordingly. This book is intended to dispel the deadening West-British influence of recent decades and to restore the European orientation which characterised Irish thought in earlier centuries, but which has been lost in recent times. 116 pp. Bibliography. Index.

Name: Ireland's Great War On Turkey, 1914 - 24

Subtitle:

Author: Walsh, Pat

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2009

ISBN: 978-085034-121-8

Contents: Ireland's Great War on Turkey is largely a forgotten event in Irish history. That is despite the fact that it was probably the most significant thing Ireland ever did in the world. That war lasted from 1914 until 1924—when the Irish Free State ratified the Treaty of Lausanne and finally, along with the rest of the British Empire, made peace with the Turks. It made the Middle East (including Palestine and Iraq) what it is today, and had the catastrophic effects on the Moslem world that persist to the present.

Ireland's part in the Great War on Turkey was an embarrassment to Republican Ireland and its historians and the details of the War became forgotten. The more recent historians of a revisionist disposition and the Remembrance commemorators have also refrained from remembering it, for other reasons.

This book, the first history of Ireland's War on Turkey, explains why the British Empire really made war on the Ottoman Empire and why Irishmen found themselves part of the invasion force it sent to Gallipoli. It describes the forgotten political and military assault launched on neutral Greece and the devastating effect this ultimately had on the Greek people across the Balkans and Asia Minor. It explains the reasons for the establishment of Palestine and Iraq and why the United States was repelled from the League of Nations by the behaviour of the British Empire in the conquered Ottoman territories after the War.

It concludes on a positive note, describing the great achievement of Ataturk in leading the Turkish nation to independence from the Imperialist Powers. This was an event that Republican Ireland could only marvel at, from the confines of the Treaty and the British Empire—an Empire whose demise Ataturk set in motion through the successful Turkish War of Independence.

Name: Irish Bulletin, Volume 2 (Hardback)

Subtitle: 3rd May 1920 to 31st August 1920

Author: Dail Eireann

Editor: Lane, Jack

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical & Educational Society

Published: 2014

ISBN: 978-1-872078-19-9

Contents: The Irish Bulletin was the official newspaper of the Irish Government during the War of Independence. Its aim was to provide those outside Ireland with the Government’s case and the facts of the war that it had to wage. This information could not otherwise be obtained because of the suppression by the British authorities of all other outlets that put the Irish Government‘s case. It was produced with minimal resources and under constant threat of suppression. It was therefore an underground publication despite being the paper of a legitimate Government.   It was unadorned with any other content except straightforward factual and irrefutable information.  This is what made its reputation and because of that it became one of the most powerful weapons in the war that eventually proved successful. It deserves an honoured place in Irish history yet it has never been republished and it is hardly referred to by our contemporary historians—and when it is—it is almost inevitably in disparaging terms. This is the second volume of the paper reproduced as faithfully as possible to the original. Other volumes will follow.

Extracts: There are no extracts at present.

Errata: p.xliv, line 34: For Tories, read Liberals p.xlvi, line 26: For Gray's, read Craig's

Name: Irish Solidarity with Cuba Libre

Subtitle: A Fenian Eyewitness Account Of The First Cuban War Of Independence

Author: O'Riordan, Manus

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: SIPTU

Published: 2009

ISBN: 978-0-9555823-1-9

Contents: Midway through Cuba's first War of Independence (1868-78), as war correspondent for the New York Herald, the Fenian leader James J. O'Kelly (1843-1916) brought the Cuban fight for freedom to world attention.

As a contribution towards internationalist solidarity and understanding, this SIPTU publication wishes to commemorate both the centenary of its own foundation in 1909 and the 50th anniversary of the 1959 Cuban Revolution.

Primarily consisting of O'Kelly's own vivid and dramatic eyewitness reports from Cuba, it is introduced by an extensive biographical essay from SIPTU's Head of Research, Manus O'Riordan, in which he details and critically evaluates the lengthy political career of James J. O'Kelly: as Fenian leader, as Home Rule MP, and—above all else—as the foremost 19th century exponent of Irish internationalist solidarity with liberation struggles in both Cuba and Africa.
