I am pleased to announce the launch of John Borgonovo’s latest book, The Dynamics of War and Revolution: Cork City, 1916-1918 (Cork University Press). John has been a friend of The Dustbin of History since its inception, and his previous works the critically acclaimed Spies, Informers and the Anti-Sinn Féin Society: The Intelligence War in Cork City, 1919-1921 (Dublin: Irish Academic Press, 2006) and The Battle for Cork: July-August 1922 (Cork: Mercier, 2011) based on years of painstaking research have offered  penetrating insights into Cork in the revolutionary period. His work has become an important facet of the ongoing historiographical debate concerning the IRA and violence at this time.  This book is set to add significantly to our understanding of the dynamics of the revolution and violence in Cork by exploring its origins in the effect of the First World War on Irish society.

The book will be launched…
