Abstract:

"This is the first biographical work of one of the chief policymakers to have served the independent Irish state. It is the only scholarly biography (apart from Sean Lemass) of a senior Fianna Fail minister prominent in every de Valera administration." "Sean MacEntee was in many ways a unique political personality. He was the most senior politician in the independent Irish state to have been born in what became Northern Ireland. Moreover, he was a fiercely independent thinker whose written contribution to the public life of the state was considerable, reflecting his insatiable interest in all aspects of government policy, not merely those for which he bore ultimate responsibility. An assessment of MacEntee's life offers a unique opportunity to convey the full force of ministerial thought over a period of four decades in government and provides a comprehensive record of the main aspects of public policymaking since the foundation of the state."--Jacket.
