Ronald Anderson was given "sole and unrestricted access" to the papers of Lord Carson in order to write this biography of Lord Edward Carson. The Carson family have never allowed anyone to see these before, because of their extreme political sensitivity. The archive consists of a huge quantity of diaries, letters, and political and legal documents. Carson, a Dublin Protestant, was one of the most successful lawyers of the day - ruthlessly effective in court, as Oscar Wilde discovered to his cost. He was also a key figure, if not the key figure, in the creation of Northern Ireland. He raised a private army of 10,000 men in defence of the Union, and brought the British Army to the verge of mutiny. A prominent MP, he found also time to serve in the war cabinets of Asquith and Lloyd George.
