Review:

'This is a major reassessment of one of the most influential leaders in the making of modern British and Irish politics ... these essays represent an important contribution to the field, and are particularly welcome to scholars interested in Liberalism.'Journal of Liberal History, Winter 2015-16 'This well-crafted selection of essays, edited by Pauric Travers and Donal McCartney, should be seen as a very welcome addition to the bookshelf of Parnell studies. It caters for the general reader as much as the specialist and it could be seen as an ideal and up-to-date introduction to themes in the life and times of Charles Stewart Parnell' Conor Mulvagh, UCD, English Historical Review, August 2015 'This collection engages in an interesting manner with the varied facets of a major political figure in the contexts of Faith, Family and Fatherland which should provide something of interest for scholars of Irish history generally.'Studia Hibernica, 2014 'For Parnellites - and who is not a Parnellite today? - this is a highly recommended collection of essays by some of the leading historians of today's Ireland' Dublin Review of Books, December 2013 'All the presentations in this volume are of interest, indeed some are by important and long established historians. But for this reviewer at least two stand out: Pat Power writing about "The Parnells and Paris", and Fionnuala Waldron on the nuanced matter of the relations of Parnell and his party with the Irish drink trade.' --The Irish Catholic, 21 November 2013

A good volume should offer essays that will contribute to a variety of subfields within the larger topic. Judged by these standards, Parnell Reconsidered passes the test. --Victorian Studies
