Product description

Review

‘In telling the stories of perhaps the most influential of all Irish national heroes…Ruth Dudley Edwards has written a fascinating, balanced and highly readable book based on thorough research.’

(The Times)

‘Fascinating and penetrating…innovative and engaging…can be welcomed as an important contribution to the discussion and a serious contribution to our understanding of an extremely complex and challenging period in modern Irish history.’

(Irish Independent)

'With its sharp observations…as well as its demystifying impulse and wry alertness to every nuance of 1916-symbolism, The Seven is an important book. It disentangles the strands of motivation and aspiration which previous generations had tended to lump together'.

(Times Literary Supplement)

'Fascinating'

(Catholic Herald)

‘Highly entertaining and engagingly irreverent.’

(New York Times Book Review)

'Dudley Edwards…clearly knows how to entertain as well as inform. This book feels like the result of a lifetime's research, neatly condensed into a colourful narrative that readers of all political persuasions should be able to enjoy'.

(Sunday Business Post)

'Dudley Edwards brings a forensic eye to these rebel lives'.

(Literary Review)

'A first rate read. Moving the narrative along with colour, verve, pace and attitude'

(Sunday Independent)

'If the Easter Rising was a passion play in which real gore was spilt, Dudley Edwards represents its leading actors as terrorists rather than freedom fighters. But she brings them to life with empathy and zest'.

(Sunday Times)

'The sketches are succinct, sympathetic and sometimes mordantly funny'.

(Evening Standard)
