Product description


The type of dual contextualized biography pursued by Patrick Mannix is more sophisticated and compelling than previous titles. My view is that The Belligerent Prelate: An Alliance between Archbishop Daniel Mannix and Eamon de Valera will prove popular in a number of specialized areas and has the capacity to excite public interest in Ireland, Australia, North America and beyond. --Dr Ruan O Donnell, Senior Lecturer, Department of History, University of Limerick, Ireland

The history of Irish diaspora leaders, both religious and lay, is a fertile ground for Irish history scholarship. Dr Mannix was the Archbishop of Melbourne for forty-six years and was a very influential figure in both Australia and Ireland. Mannix stood up for Irish Catholics when they were still treated as second-class citizens even in their own country. On this pretext alone, his name will never be forgotten. This volume is an important contribution to the study of Mannix s historical legacy. --Dr Mícheál Ó hAodha, Department of History, University of Limerick, Ireland
