The Irish experience of the Great War, and its commemoration, is the setting for Nuala Johnson's pioneering examination of "the landscape of the national imaginery". Her study represents a major contribution to cultural geography and to the historiography of remembrance. The book combines theoretical perspectives with original primary research revealing how memory literally occurred in post-1918 Ireland, and the various conflicts and struggles that were both cause and effect of the process.
Nuala C. Johnson is a Lecturer in Geography at Queen's University, Belfast.
