schema:reviewBody""University College Dublin Press has now published over thirty 'Classics of Irish History'. These contemporary accounts by well known personalities of historical events and attitudes have an immediacy that conventional histories do not have. Introductions by modern historians provide additional historical background and, with hindsight, objectivity." Books Ireland Nov 2007 "Scholars of nineteenth-century Irish and Irish-American politics should reacquaint themselves with these classics, part of a long running and immensely useful series from University College Dublin Press." Irish Literary Supplement Fall 2008 "This edition is useful for a number of reasons, not least in giving us an insight into Parnell through his own words but also for throwing light on contemporary views on the split as it contains both Wyse-Power's original preface and the introduction by Parnell's sister, Anna. Anyone interested in Parnell and the development of the nationalist movement would do well to read the man in his own words - when so much of what we know of the man is based on the opinion of others." Books Ireland September 2009."
