New Perspectives

Abstract

Michael Davitt (1846-1906) is a man often hailed as one of the main figures of nineteenth century Irish history, and is remembered in particular as the father of the Land League . In spite of this, research on his life and significance has been limited. Theo Moody s influential Davitt and the Irish Revolution (1981) only covers Davitt s life until 1882 for example. This collection of essays builds upon, challenges and revises Moody s work to highlight areas of Davitt s life which have remained in the background (such as his impact on the British labour movement, and especially Scotland, his education in Lancashire and his own views on education in a free Ireland) and to reassess Davitt s position in Irish history and popular imagination.
