A masterful account of British government policy towards Ireland,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fatal Path (Paperback)
I purchased this book recently and have been engrossed by its contents ever since. This work is the result of long and extensive archival research, mixed with critical analysis and splendid character examination. We get to hear the true voices of leading English statesmen, from Lloyd George, Churchill and Bonar Law. All students of British government policy towards Ireland will use this work as the basis of their own understanding of this complicated and fascinating subject matter - Prof. Fanning has produced a seminal work in the field of 20th century Anglo-Irish relations.

I heartily agree with these comments. For someone like myself, an enthusiastic but non professional historian, who thought he had a sound knowledge of the politics of the time, this book was an education. In this decade of centenaries of Irish History this is a timely and seminal narrative of the events of this period which we in Ireland are having live with still.
