‘[A] significant work of critical revisionism, Brannigan’s interpretations of how Behan’s writing relates to the traditions and conventions of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Irish nationalism make all previous readings inadequate’, Dr. McCarthy, Choice.

‘A very worthwhile book … [which] brings a new energy and ingenuity to the discussion of Behan and his works’, Colbert Kearney, Irish University Review.

‘Brannigan shows how Behan was a true innovator amongst other innovative artists of the 1950s’, Susan Mooney, Irish Studies Review.
