Product description


'A masterful study of how this son of the Bogside, with the help of the Irish Government, mobilised the power of successive Presidents of the United States, to change the course of Irish history. It began with President Carter and continued through to President Clinton'. --An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar T.D

'Maurice Fitzpatrick has done a service with this readable, accessible book in bringing to light the fascinating story of the rise of Irish influence in Washington and the central role played by John Hume in building that tradition of constructive US engagement with Ireland' --Irish Ambassador to the USA, Dan Mulhall, The Irish Times

In John Hume in America: From Derry to DC, author Maurice Fitzpatrick sets out, in prose clear as glass, just how hard Hume struggled to achieve that peace, and how much we are all now indebted to him. What was once his political strategy is now our political reality. --Cahir O' Doherty Irish Central
