Table of contents



It comes from The Poverty of Historicism, Karl Popper's critique of the Marxian notion that history runs inexorably and predictably towards a promised land: For the philosopher's assault on Marxism, read Richard English's lucidly written dissection of nationalism in Ireland over the last three centuries.

The Rising of the Moon - Irish folk song

Like Popper, English does not believe that the forward march of Irish nationalism towards a new Celtic Dawn is inevitable or, in the case of idealistic republicanism, realisable. He notes a chasm between Irish nationalist politicians and modern Irish historians, the latter disputing the former's contention that there is a single narrative to Ireland's 'story'. Early in the book, English advances the thesis that the reason for the modern Irish Republic having the highest rate of private property ownership per head on the planet can be traced to the 19th-century land war. Michael Davitt and the Irish radicals who fought to wrest control of land away from the Anglo-Irish ascendancy 'came to favour land nationalisation'.

He points out that in , only 3 per cent of those living on the land owned their holdings, yet by only 3 per cent did not. Later advocates of nationalisation were to be let down in the Thirties by the very people they sought to liberate. The land war paradoxically created a socially conservative peasantry.

So, according to English, thanks to Davitt, his comrades and Gladstone, we have the property-owning democracy of the 21st-century republic. English clearly admires the courage of Charles Stewart Parnell and the sub-religious fervour of Patrick Pearse, a leader of the Rising. He shows that, in the War of Independence, most of the 10, casualties were civilians.
