Product description


'a suggestive, original and elegantly written study...It is also a marvellous portrait of journalists at work, deftly deploying a star cast and providing a thoughtful analysis of the politics of publicity.' --Roy Foster, Times Literary Supplement 'Books of the Year'

'a gem of a book, scholarly, beautifully written and narrated with verve' --David Gardner, Financial Times

'The News from Ireland fills an important gap in our understanding of the Irish revolutionary period during which the battle for public opinion was essential. It provides...an extraordinary insight into how the Irish managed and the British mis-managed the press. The close study of the personalities involved and the intimate knowledge of how foreign correspondents saw their role in the period after the First World War make this an invaluable book.' --Colm Tóibín
