This is a study of popular politics in Belfast from 1905 23. It looks at the dominant nationalist and unionist movements, but also at the attempt of labour to assert itself in the Edwardian years during the unionst mobilisations against home rule, World War I, and the national revolution. The author also examines the political careers of the socialist leaders William Walker, James Larkin, and James Connolly.
