The author explores the causes of the Anglo-Irish conflict over the last two centuries. He considers crucial differences between British and Irish attitudes to time, place and property. He demonstrates the influence of Daniel O'Connell as well as the reactionary effect of violence in Irish history, and he reveals the ambiguity and self-deception in the politics of self-righteous Gaelicism. This book is the winner of the Christopher Ewart-Biggs Memorial Prize.
