″Eamon de Valera is the subject of this biography. From the 1916 Rising, the troubled Treaty negotiations and the Civil War, right through to his retirement after a longer period in power than any other twentieth century leader, de Valera has both defined and divided Ireland. He was directly responsible for the Irish Constitution, Fianna Fail (the largest Irish political party) and the Irish Press Group. He helped create a political church-state monolith with continuing implications for Northern Ireland, the social role of women, the Irish language and the whole concept of an Irish nation. Many of the challenges he confronted are still troubling the peace of Ireland and of Britain, and some of the problems are his legacy.” (Amazon)

The first volume contains his most influential pamphlet, the Letters of Orellana, published in 1784 for the purpose of re-invigorating the reform movement of the Volunteers, which was then at a low ebb. Also included are Drennan’s letters to William Bruce, in which the United Irish movement is foreshadowed; and a selection from the letters exchanged between Drennan, his sister Martha, and her husband, Sam M’Tier.

Garvin-1922 Garvin, Tom. 1922. The Birth of Irish Democracy. Dublin, Gill & Macmillan, 1996. 21.5cm x 13.5cm. xii, 240 pages. Original illustrated softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Minor marking on page 1.

Includes for example the following chapters: Democracy, Republicanism, and Nationalism/ Revolution and Democracy in Ireland 1913-23/ The Dail Government and Local Democracy, 1919-23/ The Creation of a Democratic Public Order, 1922-23/ Irish Political Culture and the Emergence of the Irish Free State/ State-Building after the Treaty/ The Prospects for Democracy and the Irish Experience etc.

This book examines the birth of the Irish state and sets it in its European historical context. The process of democratic nation-making reached full fruition while a vicious civil war was raging, ostensibly fought over points of political principle but actually deciding whether Ireland was to be ruled by popular majority will or by a virtuous but unaccountable minority. Garvin argues that militant republicanism always lacked popular, democratic legitimacy. The mainstream Irish nationalist tradition was moderate and realistic, and it was this nation-building tradition that triumphed in 1922. The stability and good order of the Irish state owes much to this victory. In particular, because the democratic impulse in Irish life overcame the cult of the virtuous minority, Ireland did not go the way of so many other newly emerging European states. There were to be no military dictators or fascist interludes; instead, there evolved a stable democracy which eventually came to include most of those defeated in 1922.
