Women, Press, and Politics During the Irish Revival (Syracuse University Press, 2007)

Mon, July 7, 2008
“Steele’s book deftly synthesizes literature, culture, history, and politics prior to Irish independence in her analysis of the advanced nationalist press.  She simultaneously places women’s contributions firmly at the center of the advanced Irish nationalism and Irish culture more generally….Steele’s scholarship and research are rigorous, original, and persuasive, and her writing is authoritative, clear and a pleasure to read….This book illuminates the work that has been done on Irish nationalism, literature, the press, and women’s contributions to the public sphere and brings fresh, important insights to all of these fields….Essential reading for scholars of Irish history, literature, culture, and politics.”
-Kathryn Conrad, University of Kansas
