Michael Collins : a life by James A Mackay( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No man since Parnell has so captured the imagination of Ireland, and his death was deeply mourned on both sides of the Irish Sea. Had Collins lived, the subsequent course of Anglo-Irish relations would have been very different. Though this is one of the great might-have-beens of history, there are vital lessons to be learned from the life and times of this strong, enigmatic, controversial but above all charismatic figure that have an important bearing on the solution of the present Irish dilemma
Allan Pinkerton : the first private eye by James A Mackay( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through four decades of tumultuous history, Allan Pinkerton left an indelible mark. From the Underground Railroad to the Chicago underworld to Pennsylvania and the civil unrest of the notorious Molly Maguires, he took on bandits, bank robbers, kidnappers, spies, and even Jesse James himself. His role in the Civil War was critical: as Lincoln's spymaster, he managed a network of spies who worked behind Confederate lines and tackled espionage at the highest levels in Washington itself. In particular, James Mackay's scrupulously balanced account challenges the conventional view of the controversy surrounding Pinkerton's role in the Peninsular campaign of 1862. Was poor intelligence responsible for prolonging the war?
