Summary
  • This work continues the argument of the author's 2001 book, 'Abject Loyalty', that in 19th century Ireland, political affinity with Britain was damaged by the sacrifice for short-term political ends of constitutional offices (such as the monarchy and lord lieutenancy) that were important for bolstering that affinity
  • Ireland's Czar: Gladstonian Government and the Lord Lieutenancies of the Red Earl Spencer, 1868-86 offers a new interpretation of the politics of late nineteenth-century Ireland and, in particular, of Gladstone's attempts first to mollify and then to concede the demands of Irish nationalists, under Parnell, for Home Rule. It shows how Gladstone tolerated the bifurcation of government in the mid-1880s, building bridges with Irish nationalism in London while allowing the Lord Lieutenant, Earl Spencer, to become the object of vituperation in Dublin. Ireland's Czar thus continues the argument made in Professor Murphy's earlier book, Abject Loyalty: Nationalism in Monarchy in Ireland during the Reign of Queen Victoria (2001) that British politicians damaged Ireland's links with Britain by sacrificing the standing of offices of constitutional affinity between the two countries, such as the monarchy and lord lieutenancy, for short-term political ends. This ground-breaking study, which uses the career of Earl Spencer as Lord Lieutenant as its vantage point, sheds new light on an important area of Irish History
