4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read, 3 Mar. 2006
This review is from: The Irish Act of Union: A Study in High Politics, 1798-1801 (Hardcover)
My knowledge of the 1800 Act of Union between Britain and Ireland was limited to what I'd learned in school which, as it turns out, is far from being a complete picture.
This book, while more academic in tone than most history books I'd usually read, gave me an excellent insight into the reasons behind the Union, the political and intelligence maneuvering that went into bringing it about and the failures associated with it. In particular, the failure of Pitt and his supporters to carry Catholic emancipation with the Union, something they saw as being one of the key pieces of the solution to the problem of securing the empire, is given a good going over and is something that I don't think a lot of people are aware of.
