|dc.description.abstract||A book by Richard Bennett entitled The Black and Tans was published
in 1959. In spite of the title, Bennett's work was not an in-depth study
of a very controversial body of men, but rather was a chronological
history of the Irish Revolution between 1919 and the Summer of 1921.
A. J. P. Taylor, in the bibliography of his English History 1914-1945,
stated that Bennett did not give a very adequate account of his subject,
an opinion to which I concur.
A study of the Black and Tans must come to grips with the following
1) Who were the Black and Tans?
2) What was the condition of the force they joined?
3) How were they trained?
4) To what were they subjected?
5) How did they react?
6) Where lied the responsibility for their actions?
This thesis, in attempting to answer these questions, is not intended
to be a chronological history of the guerilla war years of the Irish
Revolution, nor is it intended to be a comprehensive study of the British
position concerning the Irish troubles. The intention of this study is
to confront the reader with the complexity of the Black and Tan historical
problem and to give the reader as much pertinent information as is
possible on this controversial subject.||en_US
