This is a systematic account of why Ireland remained democratic after independence. Bill Kissane analyzes the Irish case from a comparative international perspective and by discussing it in terms of the classic works of democratic theory.
Democratic theory and the Irish Free State; economic development and democracy in Ireland; the Barrington Moore thesis and Irish political development; civil society and democratic practice under the union; voluntarist democratic theory and the origins of the civil war; the Durkheimian interpretation of the Civil War; reshaping the Free State - De Valera and the rise of constitutional republicanism; "Majority rule" and the constitutional development of the Free State 1922-37.
"A masterly and reasonably accessible study of the birth and development of the Free State ... His statistics throughout are fascinating." Books Ireland Summer 2002 "This book will...serve a useful purpose in that it will suggest further areas of research, into areas such as the origins of the civil war, and the role of the British in that context." Irish Democrat Oct/Nov 2002 "contains a very good exploration of the development of pre-independence civil society, and suggests plausibly that a combination of British constitutional values, British associational culture and the civil-society-encouraging nature of the British state itself, played key roles in laying strong foundations for Irish democratic consolidations ... this remains a book which makes a very helpful contribution to ongoing debates about the emergence and consolidation of Irish democracy." Irish Political Studies 18 (1) 2003 "This is a welcome and long overdue study of how Irish democracy was successfully stabilised and consolidated." Nations and Nationalism 9 (4) 2003 "an excellent and thought-provoking work which deserves a wide readership among those interested in Irish politics and history, democratic theory, democratization processes and comparative politics in the most general sense." Democratization 2003 "Addressing readers with a basic knowledge of Irish politics, Kissane's arguments are well reasoned, clearly stated and readily accessible to critical appraisal ... provides a solid foundation for a new and promising path of enquiry." Allan Zink, Strasbourg West European Politics 2003 "A fascinating study, theoretically sophisticated and empirically rigorous, this book is essential for anyone interested in democratisation in general and in Irish democratisation in particular ... it demonstrates the utility of adopting the comparative method in the analysis of a particular case and the always potentially creative tension between the general and the particular." Irish Studies Review 12 (3) 2004
