This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the issues of nationalism and the class question in the Irish Free State during the period from 1925 to 1937. Many critics have suggested that the Sinn Fein struggle and the Tan War arose out of the Easter Uprising of 1916 and that the post-rebellion executions triggered the national uprising. Irish socialist republican Peadar OʼDonnell disputed this view and suggested that it was the threat of conscription that forced the people into rebellion.

Keywords:   Irish Free State, nationalism, class question, Sinn Fein, Tan War, Easter Uprising, Peadar OʼDonnell, conscription
