Conditon Very Good
Published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London 1989
The central theme is O'Connell's demand for, and campaigns in support of, the repeal of the Act of Union between Great Britain and Ireland. O'Connell's use of repeal was manifold. He employed it to build up a separate party and bargaining power at Westminster, to stave off revolution at home, and to establish in 1835-41 a form of power sharing in Ireland.
