About the Author

Clair Wills is Leonard L. Milberg Professor of Irish Letters in the Department of English, Princeton University.


Just as Fort McHenry and the Alamo are iconic in American history, Dublin's General Post Office is important in modern Irish history. Historian Wills explores how it acquired its symbolism, starting from the events of the 1916 Easter Rising that occurred there, to how they were remembered in popular memory, in literature and film, and in politics...History readers will be drawn to Wills' incisive study. -- Gilbert Taylor * Booklist *
