Recent Historical and Contemporary Source Material

revised and updated 02/01/06

We list these in groups in order of date of original publication. The grouping is subject to change as the list develops. Some are hotlinked, and those in the first group marked ** are potentially so, being accessible in review mode within the Century sector. Those marked 6 are of Irish Studies interest and are with Boston College; those marked 5 are of interest to the Labour History Society; 4 are of Quaker interet; 3 of family or personal research interest, 2 are of Irish Studies interest with Notre Dame, and 1? are perhaps of additional interest to the RDS.

Historical Studies of the Recent Past: Attic case 6 shelf 2
There is some overlap between this group and the other group which I have listed as background to the Century book; this also is relevant background in that context, but tends to be more recent. Some reallocation might make sense.

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.
