The Bordeaux-Dublin Letters provides a fascinating 'snapshot' of a cross section of society in wartime through their investigation into 125 letters carried aboard a ship, the Two Sisters of Dublin, captured at sea in 1757, in the midst of the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). Most of these letters lay unopened for 250 years until they were rediscovered in the UK National Archives in 2011.

John Devoy's Catalpa Expedition

Philip Fennel and Mary King
John Devoy's Catalpa Expedition

Edited by Philip Fennell and Marie King, introduction by Terry Golway
NYU Press, 272 pages
ISBN 0814727484, Cloth, (2006)

The story of John Devoy's 1876 Catalpa rescue is a tale of heroism, creativity, and the triumph of independent spirit in pursuit of freedom.

The daily log on board the whaling ship Catalpa begins with the typical recount of a crew intact and a spirit unfettered, but such quiet words deceive the truth of the audacious enterprise that came to be known as one of the most important rescues in Irish-American history. John Devoy's men rescued six Irish political prisoners from the Australian coast, allowing millions of fellow Irishmen and American-Fenians, many of whom secretly financed the dangerous plot, to draw courage from the newly exiled prisoners.

Ireland: Contested Ideas of Nationalism and History

Hugh F. Kearney
Ireland: Contested Ideas of Nationalism and History

by Hugh F. Kearney 
NYU Press, 368 pages 
ISBN 0814748007, Cloth (2007)

What is the Irish nation? Who is included in it? Are its borders delimited by religion, ethnicity, language, or civic commitment? And how should we teach its history? These and other questions are carefully considered by distinguished historian Hugh F. Kearney in Ireland: Contested Ideas of Nationalism and History.

The insightful essays collected here all circle around Ireland, with the first section attending to questions of nationalism and the second addressing pivotal moments in the history and historiography of the isle. Kearney contends that Ireland represents a striking example of the power of nationalism, which, while unique in many ways, provides an illuminating case study for students of the modern world. He goes on to elaborate his revisionist "four nations" approach to Irish history.
