Name: The Economics Of Partition

Subtitle: A Historical Survey Of Ireland In Terms Of Political Economy

Author: Clifford, Brendan

Editor:

Category: Northern Ireland Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 1992

ISBN: 0 85034 074 8

Contents: "The Economics Of Partition" is a history of Ireland since the 17th century as seen through the categories of political economy. It evolved amidst the intense turmoil of West Belfast in 1969-72. It went through many editions as a pamphlet, growing with each edition, and made a discernible effect on the turmoil within which it was produced. Though unmistakably a product of nationalist Ireland, its purpose was to demolish the prevailing nationalist view of the Unionist community in Ulster. That view, though expounded by learned academics no less than by demagogic politicians, is shown to be a mere combination of ignorance and prejudice. Having lived a vigorous life as a vulgar pamphlet, "The Economics Of Partition" has now been reduced to respectability as a book. Its battle has been won. Many books now contain ideas which were first developed in it, and usually do so without acknowledging the source. The appearance of this source pamphlet in book form is therefore long overdue. 108 pp. Bibliography. Index.

Name: The Events Of 1915

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2013

ISBN: 978-0-85034-126-3

Contents: The events that occurred in Eastern Anatolia in 1915 should be located in a broader context than simply that of Turk against Armenian. Both Turks and Armenians were, after all, actors in a much wider drama that was unfolding in the world and any judgement about their actions can only be made with the knowledge that they were caught up in circumstances that were not of their choosing and were largely beyond their control.

Name: The Forged "Irish Bulletin"

Subtitle: Reproduction of British Government Forgeries

Author: Lane, Jack

Editor: Lane, Jack

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2017

ISBN: 978 1 903497 86 9

Contents: The “Irish Bulletin” was the daily paper of the Irish Government established on the basis of the 1918 General election, the first Dáil Éireann. It was a hugely influential publication and played a crucial role in winning the War of Independence. The highest compliment possible was paid to it by the British Government when it set out to discredit it by forging a run of the paper. It was an audacious and desperate project and is proof of how concerned the Government had become about its effect on political opinion in Britain itself and internationally. This pamphlet is a collection of all the extant copies of the forgery and we are pretty sure that it is the complete run of what was published.

Name: The Genesis Of National Socialism

Subtitle:

Author: Williams, T. Desmond

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Belfast Historical And Educational Society

Published: 2012

ISBN: 978-1-872078-16-8

Contents: The Genesis Of National Socialism is the magnum opus of Thomas Desmond Williams. He wrote it as a student at University College Dublin. A few years later he was made Professor of Modern History at UCD. But he never as Professor issued a work comparable for substance and quality with what he had written as a student.

The present work covers the formation, under the guidance of Prussia, of a single German state, by bringing together the scores of German petty states into a voluntary union.

Unfortunately, however, it does not deal at all with what is said to be its subject—the formation of the Nazi Party. Nevertheless it was awarded an Honours MA Degree.

As something produced within Irish academia, it is beyond comparison. It stands alone as a giant fragment that came from nowhere.

Williams served in British Intelligence before being appointed Professor of History at UCD. In a comment on Williams' work, Brendan Clifford describes the libel action brought against Williams by the wartime Irish Ambassador to Spain, Leopold Kerney, over allegations of collaboration with the Nazis made by Williams, apparently on the basis of what he thought he knew from his work as a British Intelligence operative.

Clifford also contrasts the way Germany united itself with the way England constructed and maintained the United Kingdom.

Name: The Grammar Of Anarchy:

Subtitle: Force Or Law—Which?

Author: Horgan, J.J.

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2006

ISBN: 1 874157 15 4

Contents: The Grammar Of Anarchy was the final fling of Redmondite Home Rule in the literature of live politics.

It was published during the Conscription crisis of 1918. The copy deposited in the Copyright Library is date-stamped "30 Aug 18".

The author, or compiler, is identified in the first edition only by the initials J.J.H. In the second edition, published late in 1919, he revealed himself as John Joseph Horgan.

Apart from a brief Foreword by Horgan, the pamphlet consists of extracts from speeches made between 1910 and 1914 by members of the Opposition who had become members of the Government during the Great War. It was passed by the Censor, Major Bryan Cooper, who did not feel he could suppress statements made by members of the Government on whose authority he acted. But it was subsequently banned by the Government itself.

J.J. Horgan belonged to the substantial middle class core of the Home Rule Party. His father had been a Parnellite and a personal friend of Parnell. He was himself a loyal supporter of John Redmond, who died in March 1918, shortly before publication of the Grammar.

It must be emphasised that the Grammar was not a Sinn Féin publication.

The Grammar is an anti Sinn Féin publication. It is the swan-song of 'Constitutional nationalism' which, in its dying fall, charges the upholders of the Constitution with having destroyed it.

Its message was that the rise of Sinn Féin was made possible by the conduct of the senior politicians of the British State, which is demonstrated in their own words. That is the message, even though Sinn Féin is not mentioned.
