We list these in groups in order of date of original publication. The grouping is subject to change as the list develops. There has been some library uptake, and more is in prospect, if locations can be identified interested in post-colonial studies, especially critical analysis of the Left, in Irish and global contexts. Please contact RJ rjtechne at iol dot ie..

Some navigational notes:

In general, if you click on the 'Back' button it will bring to to the point of departure in the module from which you came; this may be different from those listed at the bottom. Even if the module from which you came is listed at the bottom, it is still preferable to use the 'back' button, because the explicit bottom-of-page hot-spot will return you to the beginning of the module, and you will have to scroll down to get back to where you were.
