Product description


'The book uses previously unseen archival material to scrutinise its subject. What emerges is what Dr Evans claims is the real Sean Lemass an authoritarian, cunning, and workaholic patriot and a shrewd political tactician whose impatience lay not just with the old Ireland, but with democracy itself.' --Irish Independent

'Refreshing […] Evans has successfully created a new impression of Lemass.' --Irish Economic and Social History
