About this title

Synopsis:

This text, derived from the manuscript in the National Library of Ireland, describes Roger Casement's journey into the South American rainforests to investigate atrocities against tribal people of the north-west Amazon. It follows Casement's transition from observer to anti-imperial revolutionary and Irish patriot, leading to his execution by the British in August 1916 after the failure of the Easter Rising.

From the Back Cover:

"He could tell you things! Things I've tried to forget; things I never did know." Joseph Conrad

"... his was a heroic nature. I should like to write upon him subtly, so that his enemies would think I was with them until they finished my book and rose from it to call him a hero. He has the appeal of a broken archangel." T.E. Lawrence

"This is a book of the very greatest interest ... It describes the work of Sir Roger Casement as an investigator of genocide amongst the Amerindians of the north-west Amazon. Sadly, genocide among the Amazon Indians has continued until recent times but external investigations of this kind have been rare. The way in which Sir Roger carried out his work is relevant to all kinds of humanitarian and whistle-blowing activities." Richard Bourne (Survival International)
