Ronan Fanning & Charles Townshend in conversation with John Borgonovo

Ronan Fanning’s Fatal Path; British Government and Irish Revolution,[masked] is a magisterial narrative of the most turbulent decade in Anglo-Irish history. It was a time when violence and the threat of violence trumped democratic politics and, argues Fanning, it worked, however much this view offends our contemporary moral sensibilities. Charles Townshend’s The Republic; The Fight for Irish Independence,[masked] dovetails perfectly with Fanning’s book, taking us from the War of Independence through the Civil War and shows how the betrayals and grim compromises put the new nation into a state of
trauma for at least a generation. Thus was the new republic born.

John Borgonovo is a history lecturer in University College Cork.
