Summary
  • To provide a more thorough, objective portrait of Davis, historian Helen F. Mulvey here presents a scholarly examination of Davis's life and thoughts."
  • "Throughout this narrative, Mulvey covers the principal events of Davis's life and work, discusses his role in the evolution of Irish nationalism, and reveals his importance to generations of nationalists. Mulvey pays particular attention to his motivations, ideas, interests, friendships, and inconsistencies. A man of many talents, Davis might have become a lawyer, an historian of Ireland, a writer of historical fiction, or a champion of various public causes political or social. He was a man of moderation, however, flexible and intelligent about ends and means. His gifts for friendship, his grace of manner drew people to him and marked him out as a natural leader. Even his political opponents admired him."--Jacket
