Politics in Ireland is something of a national obsession. Despite a decline in voter turnout in recent general elections, politics still attracts huge interest and controversy. Powerful political figures like Charles Haughey, Eamon de Valera, Charles Stewart Parnell and Daniel O'Connell dominated Irish politics at different times over the past two centuries and defined their eras. The great election campaigns waged by these politicians, and the controversies in which they were involved, have left a deep imprint on all aspect of Irish life, from law to literature; from economics to family life.

This book gives us a concise overview of Irish political life, from the Act of Union to the present day.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A hugely informative and enjoyable account of the long and colourful history of politics in Ireland. Stephen Collins has produced a book that is a fitting and, at times, humorous epitaph to the good, the bad and the utterly bizarre episodes in the evolution of a modern democracy in Ireland.' -- Western People
'an introduction to the political history of the country . . . informative.' -- The Sunday Tribune * The Sunday Tribune *
'Collins combines indepth political knowledge with genuine interest to produce a comprehensive analysis of some of Ireland's best-known leaders. This is one not to be missed by readers with an interest in history and politics.' -- Irish Farmer's Monthly * Irish Farmers Monthly *
