Ireland and Beyond

Edited by: K. Theodore Hoppen, Mary E. Daly

This book examines aspects of Gladstone's relationship with Ireland, setting this in the context of the United Kingdom and Empire. It is based on papers given at a conference, funded by the Department of the Taoiseach, at St Deniol's Library in Hawarden (Gladstone's home in North Wales), to mark the bicentenary of his birth. *** "Some of the most pleasing essays...explore some of Gladstone's personal qualities and how these informed the charisma that contemporaries (notably, Max Weber) ascribed to him." -- Victorian Studies, Vol. 57, No. 3, Spring 2015~
