Ireland and India

Nationalism, Empire and Memory


Part of the Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Series book series (CIPCSS)

About this book


Through a consideration of historical memory, commemoration and the 'imagined communities' of nationalism, Ireland and India examines three aspects of Ireland's imperial history: relationships between Irish and Indian nationalists, the construction of Irishmen as imperial heroes, and the commemoration of an Irish regiment's mutiny in India.
