This is a beautiful biography of one of Ireland's first National Heroes. Parnell was the first politician to really get nationalist Ireland mobilised. Parnell introduced Home Rule, which proved to be the first successful step towards Ireland's freedom from British Rule.
He also divided Gladstone's Liberal party between those who supported Home Rule and those who opposed it, and generally forced the Irish question to the heart of British politics where it remained until 1922.
