Abstract

My book and accompanying critical analysis argue that the connections between the struggle for civil rights in Ireland and black America have been strong and underplayed for over a century and a half. The book traced the historical links from the 1840s with a focus on the 1960s, and brought new perspectives to the academic research of both contexts, which had generally been explored separately. By reflecting on a review of literature produced since 1998, the critical analysis shows how the book has influenced academic reach since, including on the transnational connections between the two experiences. It also explores how the civil rights movements in both countries have inspired and guided contemporary struggles, notably those in the Middle East, and continue to inform and guide activists and policy-makers.
