Name: Conversations With Carlyle

Subtitle: Reprint Of The 1892 Classic

Author: Duffy, Charles Gavan

Editor: Clifford, Brendan

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2006

ISBN: 0 85034 114 0

Contents: That Gavan Duffy's Conversations With Carlyle has been out of print since its first edition in 1892 shows how modern Ireland is losing touch with its political origins. In this book it is reproduced in full, along with related texts. There is a substantial extract from Carlyle's Irish Journey, as well as shorter excerpts from his Sartor Resartus, Past & Present and Chartism.
Thomas Carlyle is now much forgotten, but his work went into the making of England. What is not widely appreciated is that his condemnation of Manchester capitalism struck a chord in mid-nineteenth century Ireland. The backdrop to Carlyle's association with Young Ireland and to his journeys in Ireland was the Great Famine of 1847, itself an indictment of laissez-faire. Young Ireland found in Carlyle's demands for political intervention in the production process an inspiration for remedying the ills of Ireland.
Brendan Clifford's introduction, Stray Thoughts About Young Ireland, considers the dynamics of the strange relationship between Irish revolutionaries and the English imperialist prophet, in the context of the views of Professor Maurice O'Connell, Conor Cruise O'Brien and Professor Roy Foster.

Extracts: From the beginning of Brendan Clifford's introduction Stray Thoughts On Young Ireland.

Name: Coolacrease

Subtitle: The true story of the Pearson executions:—an incident in the Irish War of Independence

Author: Heaney, Paddy, Muldowney, Pat, O'Connor,

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2008

ISBN: 978-1-903497-48-7

Contents: COOLACREASE: A Shocking Story

At the end of the Irish War of Independence, two brothers were shot in Coolacrease, Co. Offaly, and their house was burned.

The people who carried out the shootings were not Irish rebels or uninvolved civilians. They were loyalist Protestants who had chosen to take up arms against the forces of the democratically elected Irish government. The IRA command ordered their execution.

So what is shocking about the deaths of these two men, in comparison with the hundreds of other deaths in the war waged by the British Imperial Government against the Irish democracy?

These events were practically unkown until 2007 when the Irish national broadcasting agency RTE produced a television documentary which portrayed the executions of the Pearson brothers as a sectarian anti-Protestant atrocity in furtherance of a land grab, as part of an ethnic cleansing drive by the Irish Republican movement against an ethnic minority in Ireland.

RTE claimed that their case was based on official evidence in documents of the Irish Land Commission.

…and now comes the really shocking part

RTE could not produce the documents they claimed proved their case, and the Land Commission denies that the programme ever examined the records of the division of the Pearson farm. The case presented by RTE is nothing but spurious atrocity propaganda, a travesty of what really happened.

The documentary record is presented in this book, which tells the true story of these tragic events.

This is a shocking story of low standards and cheap propaganda.

Name: Dánta Eoghan Rua O'Sullivan

Subtitle: Poems of Eoghan Rua O'Sullivan

Author: O'Sullivan, Eoghan Rua

Editor: Muldowney, Pat

Category: Gaelic Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2009

ISBN: 978 1 903497 57 9

Contents: Eoghan an Bhéil ar an saol aris!

This book is a copanion volume to the Aislingi or Vision Poems of Eoghan Rua O'Sullivan re-published by the Aubane Historical Society in 2002. The present volume includes the other poems attributed to Eoghan in the editions of his work published by Pádraig Ua Duinnín (1901 and 1923), and by Risteárd Ó Foghludha (1937). Also included in this edition are some previously unpublished manuscript poems attributed to Eoghan, and lines and verses which were omitted by Ua Duinnín and Ó Foghludha because they were too risqué for publication in editions which those editors optimistically expected to be used as school textbooks.

The poems published here for the first time are attributed to Eoghan in the Royal Irish Academy manuscripts, in the Ferriter Collection in University College Dublin. The full version of Molly Casey's Charms is from a manuscript in Mount Melleray library. The Gaelic fonts were created by Vincent Morley. Terry Curran designed the cover.

In the eighteenth century, and even the nineteenth, the poems of Eoghan Rua were kept in circulation by arduous manual transcription carried on in difficult circumstances. After a lapse of seventy years since Ó Foghludha's edition, this re-publication of part of our literary inheritance is long overdue.

Eoghan Ó Súilliobháin (his own spelling) died in 1784, aged about 36. His muse lives in these pages.

Name: Das Kapital Reviewed

Subtitle: A modern business approach to Marxism

Author: Martin, John

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2007

ISBN: 9 780 85034 115 7

Contents: This book is a review of Karl Marx's Das Kapital from a businessman's perspective. John Martin gives a clear concise summary of the ideas contained in the three volumes of Marx's classic work and then subjects them to criticism.

Das Kapital describes the laws of motion of the capitalist system. Marx had very little to say about the transition from capitalism to communism and still less about what a communist society might look like. Therefore the relevance of Marx's work does not stand or fall on the fortunes of the communist movement.

Indeed the author argues that the persistence of the capitalist system and its continued expansion throughout the world makes the ideas of Marx more relevant in the twenty-first than in the nineteenth century when the work was written.

There are two insights of Marx which are more relevant today than they were in his own time. The first is the idea that capitalism socialises production even if ownership remains in private hands. The second insight is the idea that capitalism has a tendency to incorporate the world into its system. The current word for this phenomenon is "Globalisation".

The author compares Marx's theoretical view of the capitalist system with his own practical experience and concludes that Marx's analysis gives a better theoretical framework for understanding the system than modern economics textbooks. Notwithstanding Marx's errors, which the author discusses, the overall conclusion is that it is far too soon to consign Marx to the dustbin of history.

John Martin has an Honours Degree in Economics and Politics, and is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland. He has worked as a Financial Controller, Director, and General Manager, and is currently a part owner of an Irish Manufacturing company.
