In comparison with other 20th-century Irish leaders, W.T. Cosgrave has been neglected by scholars. This biography by a leading Irish historian uses sources not previously consulted to examine W.T. Cosgrave's career as a local politician, a rebel, a minister, the head of government for nearly 10 years, and the opposition leader. In particular, the book assesses his role as a state-builder and a key figure in the Irish democratic tradition. *** "A seminal work of impressive scholarship and painstaking research, 'Judging W.T. Cosgrave: The Foundation of the Irish State' is very highly recommended for academic library 20th Century Irish Political History reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists." - Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch: May 2015, World History Shelf *** "William Thomas Cosgrave (1880-1965) is rarely included in the pantheon of heroic Irish leaders, but he made vital contributions to the emerging Irish state. Cosgrave set the young nation on the democratic course it has since followed, eschewing the militarism that several revolutionary colleagues endorsed. This book is handsomely designed and laid out, abundantly illustrated, and smoothly written. Highly recommended." -- Choice, Vol. 53, No. 6, February 2016 [Subject: Biography, Irish Studies, Political History]
