This collection of essays by a wide range of leading historians explores the significance of several major events and some leading personalities within the broad chronological parameters of this momentous decade in modern Irish history.

These include the impact of British press support for Edward Carson's Ulster Volunteers; the wartime and peacetime experiences of Somme soldiers; the impact of Dublin's Rising on Northern republicans; and the role of the Boundary Commission in determining the nature of border communities.

This timely publication by the Ulster Historical Foundation is dedicated to the memory of three outstanding historians - Jonathan Bardon, George Boyce and Eamon Phoenix - who sadly passed away in 2020 and 2022.
