James Larkin: Irish Labour Leader 1876-1947
ISBN: 0745303048

Pluto Press. 1989

A long out of print biography of James Larkin who ranks alongside James Connolly as one of Ireland's great working class leaders. Larkin, a committed socialist militant, united and led Belfast's Catholic and protestant dock workers in a bitter dispute with the Unionist bosses in 1907. In the ensuing conflict thousands of Orangemen declared solidarity with Larkin and the police mutinied in support of the strikers. This book helps increase understanding of the man who some considered the greatest revolutionary syndicalist of his time.

The Historical Dimensions of Irish Catholicism
ISBN: 0813205948

The Catholic University of America Press. 1984

Throughout the nineteenth century, the phenomenon of "Irish Catholicism" became an important part of the religious landscape in the entire English-speaking world. Extending beyond the Roman Catholic Church in England and Scotland, the developing values and mores of Irish Catholicism strongly influenced the Church in the United States and many other English-speaking countries. In an effort to better understand the phenomenon, Emmet Larkin attempts to explain how the Church was able to acquire such considerable power and influence in nineteenth-century Ireland. This volume, originally published in 1976 and reprinted with a new introduction in 1984, is the partial fruit of Emmet Larkin's lifetime study of the history of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland.




In three short essays (first published as articles in The American Historical Review), Larkin analyzes the economic, social, and political context of nineteenth-century Ireland. He studies the growth of the Church's economic power in Ireland, the "1850-1875 devotional revolution" in which the Irish people became virtually practicing Catholics within a generation, and the extent of the Church's political power and influence over Ireland. Larkin's introduction provides a critical assessment of his previous interpretations and a guide to more recent scholarly research.

The Roman Catholic Church in Ireland and the Fall of Parnell, 1888-1891
ISBN: 0807813524

The University of North Carolina Press. 1979

Larkin presents an original thesis on the development of the modern Irish state, maintaining that Parnell forged a de facto state that was strengthened and consolidated before the conventionally accepted dates for the emergence of the Irish state. This unique political system survived attacks by the British Conservative government and Parnell's own challenge to the system and his subsequent defeat. Larkin argues that Parnell's failure lay in the power of his system to transcend its creator.

The Roman Catholic Church and the Home Rule Movement in Ireland, 1870-74
ISBN: 071711760X

Gill & Macmillan Ltd. 1990

In this, his sixth book on the Roman Catholic church in Ireland, Larkin focuses on the church's role in the first stage of the emergence of the modern Irish political system. This system depended upon the convergence of three crucial elements -- the leader, the party, and the Irish bishops as a body -- and in the 1870s, these elements began to coalesce. The refusal of the bishops to come to terms with the Home Rule movement was fortunate

otherwise their dominance would have altered the shape of Irish politics.
