History of Ireland and the Irish Diaspora
By linking Ireland and Irish America, this series recognizes the many forms of historical interaction between the Irish at home and abroad. The series welcomes books that are transatlantic in their scope and concerns. The linkage also recognizes the extent to which Irish-American history has come to rival Irish history in the maturity and sophistication of its scholarship.
In addition to works of original research, the editors are keen to publish works of broader design that seek to consolidate scholarship on a given subject and to present findings in forms particularly well suited to students and general readers.

The Road to Home Rule
Anti-imperialism and the Irish National Movement
“A bold and original interpretation in which empire emerges as the essential context—rather than a mere sideshow or backdrop—for the rise of Irish nationalism. To find the origins of Home Rule, we will now need to look not simply at the internal politics of the United Kingdom but at Irish responses to events in India, Egypt, Sudan, and South Africa.”
