Dev by Diarmaid Ferriter
Eamon de Valera has often been characterised as a stern, un-bending, devious and divisive Irish politician. But how valid is this caricature? In Judging Dev, Diarmaid Ferriter re-examines de Valera's life and legacy. Using previously unpublished letters, documents and photographs from the UCD Archives and the National Archives of Ireland, he chronicles the extraordinary career of the most significant politician of modern Irish history and his crucial role in the history of the Irish state.
Engaging, original, provocative and lavishly illustrated, this book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the public and private worlds of Eamon de Valera.
‘A book of considerable intellectual
force and widespread appeal’ Paul Bew, Irish Times
Judging Dev was chosen by the public as the winner of the Tubridy Show Listeners' Choice Award and it also won the Argosy Irish Non-Fiction Book of the Year Award and the Eason Irish Published Book of the Year Award.
