Edited by: Robert McNamara

Since the 17th century, the Churchill family, one of Britain's greatest political and military dynasties, has had an enormous impact on the history of Ireland. This book traces this relationship in a series of essays examining the connections and controversies. It explores the key figures in the Churchill family who influenced Irish history and politics, including the first Sir Winston Churchill, the First Duke of Marlborough, Lord Randolph Churchill, and Winston Churchill himself. Also included in the collection are Bourke Cockran and Brendan Bracken, two important Irish Churchillians who were influential figures in their own right in the US and Britain respectively. This comprehensive overview provides a fascinating assessment of one British family's important influence on the course of Irish history.
