Once again Rutherfurd takes us inside the process of history by tracing the lives of several Dublin families from all strata of society, Protestant and Catholic, rich and poor, conniving and heroic. Through the eyes of the victims and the perpetrators alike the painful realities of the anti-Catholic penal laws, the catastrophic famine and the massive migration to North America, the rise of the great nationalists O'Connell and the tragic Parnell, the glorious Irish cultural renaissance of Joyce and Yeats, and finally, the triumphant founding of the Irish Republic in 1922.

A continuation of "The Princes of Ireland", this was an entertaining yet factual account of the historical context which has been the foundation for many of the troubles in Ireland in our times.

I really loved this book. I have a family link to Ireland and have read some dry Irish history books. Rutherfurd delivers Irish history with a very well developed story. I now feel I understand a little better what my ancestors went through. You really should read the first book Princes of Ireland before you read this one as it is a continuation. The Princes of Ireland is the beginning of known Irish history and the Rebels of Ireland continues on with the families that we meet first in Princes.
