Dublin Castle and the First Home Rule Crisis: Volume 33 : The Political Journal of Sir George Fottrell, 1884-1887, Hardback Book

Dublin Castle and the First Home Rule Crisis: Volume 33 : The Political Journal of Sir George Fottrell, 1884-1887 Hardback

Edited by Stephen Ball

Part of the Camden Fifth Series series

Description

This vivid record of the major crisis of late nineteenth-century British politics comes from the unique perspective of someone who was both a crown official and an active Irish nationalist.

It provides an insider's first-hand account of British attempts to negotiate a satisfactory settlement of the Irish question, and is complemented by contemporary official papers and the private correspondence of leading politicians and senior officials in Dublin.

These valuable sources illuminate a long neglected aspect of the British Government's response to Irish nationalism during 1884-1887, suggesting that Gladstone's adoption of home rule was more significantly influenced by warnings of incipient revolution in Ireland than has been previously thought.
