This book explores Irish experiences of medicine and health during
the First and Second World Wars, the War of Independence and the
Civil War. It examines the physical, mental and emotional impact of
conflict on Irish political and social life, as well as medical,
scientific and official interventions in Irish health matters. The
contributors put forward the case that warfare and political unrest
profoundly shaped Irish experiences of medicine and health, and
that Irish political, social and economic contexts added unique
contours to those experiences not evident in other countries. In
pursuing these themes, the book offers an original and focused
intervention into a central, but so far unexplored, area of Irish
