Book Description

Previous histories on O’Connell have dealt predominantly with his attempts to secure a repeal of the 1800 Act of Union and on his success in achieving Catholic Emancipation in 1829, Kinealy focuses instead on the neglected issue of O’Connell’s contribution to the anti-slavery movement in the United States.
