Home rule and the Irish question
Taking the years 1800-1920, the book considers the four Home Rule Bills and discusses the role of leading figures such as Charles Stewart Parnell and Isaac Butt. This is a careful study of the rise in political consciousness- it addresses the relationship between nationalism and the Catholic faith, and popular support for the Union amongst Ulster Protestants- providing clear analysis of a troubled period.
