This ground-breaking book situates Joyce in his historical moment, exploring his attitudes towards colonialism, nationalism, World War I, gender, and class. Although James Fairhall draws on a wide range of critical theories, his study is clearly written and is accessible to any reader interested in the relation between Joyce's works and history.

Editorial Reviews

'An excellent book. To the vexed question of the political dimensions of Joyce's writings it brings an awareness of the complexity of the relation between literary texts and historical contexts, while at the same time providing historical material that will enrich readings of his works.' Derek Attridge
