Musical Culture and the Spirit of Irish Nationalism is the first comprehensive history of music's relationship with Irish nationalist politics. Addressing rebel songs, traditional music and dance, national anthems and protest song, the book draws upon an unprecedented volume of material to explore music's role in cultural and political nationalism in modern Ireland. From the nineteenth-century Young Irelanders, the Fenians, the Home Rule movement, Sinn F in and the Anglo-Irish War to establishment politics in independent Ireland and civil rights protests in Northern Ireland, this wide-ranging survey considers music's importance and its limitations across a variety of political movements.

Richard Parfitt, based at the University of Oxford, is a historian of political music and culture in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
