De Valera: Rule (1932-1975)

The concluding volume of David McCullagh’s new life of Eamon De Valera.

In this, the concluding volume of David McCullagh’s monumental new biography of the revolutionary and statesman, we join de Valera in 1932 as he takes the reins of power in the first Fianna Fáil government and follow him as he confronts one challenge after another – the Economic War, the drafting of Bunreacht na hÉireann, the Emergency, the North, the declaration of the Republic, economic stagnation in the 1950s – and sets about gradually remaking a sovereign Ireland in his own image.

Beautifully written and deeply researched, McCullagh’s De Valera is a provocative and nuanced portrait of Ireland’s most enigmatic leader, as well as a balanced assessment of his role in shaping our national self-image.
