"This is a top-line political history of the old school, and none the worse for it." Irish Democrat March 2004 "all readers should appreciate the total achievement of MacDonagh's ... a gathering of clearly and gracefully presented original and perceptive ideas and observations, the product of much research and deep reflection, compacted into a relatively short space ... should be in the library of all those interested in Irish Studies. It is an ideal complement to standard texts in college and university Irish history courses." Irish Literary Supplement Fall 2004 "a book that deserves its new designation as a classic of Irish history." Irish Studies Review 13 (4) 2005 "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
