“Éamon de Valera: A Will to Power” Part 1
CJAC Irish Biography Discussion Series
Participants are asked to read Éamon de Valera: A Will to Power by Ronan Fanning (Harvard University Press, 2016) in preparation for the online discussion. The first half of the book will be discussed on February 23 at 6:30 – 7:30 pm CST via Zoom.
In his 2016 biography of Éamon de Valera, author Ronan Fanning attempted to provide the reader with a “reappraisal of the man who remains the most famous, and the most divisive, political figure in modern Irish history, reconciling de Valera’s shortcomings with a recognition of his achievement as the statesman who single-handedly severed Ireland’s last ties to England.”
Join Dr. Kevin Byrne and Dr. Steven Griffith via Zoom to discuss Fanning’s work and de Valera’s impact on Ireland. Such a conversation is especially appropriate as Ireland celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Irish Free State.
