Product Overview

Irish Republican Socialist

The Irish Citizen Army was a Marxist-influenced socialist republican organisation that emerged out of the social conditions and related labour struggles of early twentieth-century Dublin.

This book examines the largely under-appreciated military and political significance of the Citizen Army. As an army both for and of the working class, it was a unique historical phenomenon.
It was in fact the world's first working-class army.

Daithi Mac an Mhaistir is a teacher of applied social studies at a college of further education in Dublin. He holds degrees in psychology, anthropology, and military history.

    This book is great for looking in depth at The ICA—something otherwise left behind in the history of struggle. I just wish it was a bit longer.
