Owen Mc Gee A major new biography of a monumental figure in modern Irish history.
Arthur Griffith was a veracious journalist and proponent of economic nationalism who founded Sinn Féin, served as President of Dáil Éireann, and was chairman of the Irish delegation in the negotiations that produced the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921.
As a working-class Dubliner who played a crucial role in inspiring and leading Dáil Éireann in its formative stages, Arthur Griffith’s life and world is one of the greatest windows into understanding the dynamics of the Irish revolution.
Owen Mc Gee’s authoritative biography is based on fascinating original research and presents a fresh analysis and interpretation of Griffith’s life and the economic basis of the political history of the era.
Griffith has been typified as ‘the last Young Irelander’ and Owen Mc Gee’s masterly account reflects on this by examining the very different conceptions of Irish nationalism that existed before and after the formation of the Irish state.
It also suggests that Griffith’s belief in the importance of economic freedoms and the ability of an independent Ireland to provide for its own people, was an ideal that inspired the subsequent evolution of the Irish state.
Owen Mc Gee holds a Ph D in history and a MA in archive studies from University College Dublin.
He has taught history at the University of Limerick and worked as a teaching assistant at UCD.
The sparse historical background of Arthur is gleaned from various sources, including the Annales Cambriae, the Historia Brittonum, and the writings of Gildas.
