1 - 2 weeks availability
To Michael Collins, the signing of the treaty between Ireland and Britain in 1921 was a 'stepping stone'. Eamon de Valera called it 'treason'. The controversy surrounding the treaty and how it led to the Civil War of 1922-1923, is examined here. T. Ryle Dwyer not only takes an in-depth look at the characters and motivations of the two main Irish protaginaists but also gives many insights into the views and ideas of the other people involved on both sides if the Irish sea.
T. Ryle Dwyer was educated in Tralee CBS and at the University of North Texas, USA, where he received BA, MA and PhD degrees in history. He is a regular columnist with the Irish Examiner and has published eighteen books on different aspects of twentieth century Irish history, including his best selling The Squad and a highly-acclaimed biography of Charles J. Haughey, Short Fellow.
