The IPP and Home Rule
What is it about?
In my review of James McConnel's new book, I provide an overview of the publication and give my opinion on its strengths and weaknesses. He looks at the history of Irish nationalist backbenchers in the Edwardian period and argues they are key to our understanding of the Home Rule crisis, and constitutional, parliamentary and constituency politics.
Why is it important?
This review appeared online shortly before the 100th anniversary of the Suspensory Act, which postponed the implementation of the Irish Home Rule the nationalists had sought for so long. The book itself is a welcome addition to the scholarship and will be of particular interest to those studying the politics of organisation.
