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 â??the father of the Land Leagueâ??. In spite of this, research on his life and significance has been limited, the historiography being dominated for a quarter of a century by Theo Moodyâ??s Davitt and Irish Revolution (Oxford, 1981). The importance of this work is unquestioned, and yet it only covers Davittâ??s life until 1882 â?? after which time, Moody concedes in his conclusion, he pursued a career as â??nationalist, labour leader, democratic reformer, humanitarian, and internationalistâ??. Thus, it is the purpose of this collection of essays to build upon, challenge, and revise Moodyâ??s work â?? to highlight areas of Davittâ??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 â??freeâ?? Ireland) and to reassess Davittâ??s position in Irish history and popular imagination.

Michael Davitt (1846-1906) is popularly known as the founder of the Irish National Land League and as the architect of the agrarian campaign of 1879-82. However, while the Land War was pivotal in Irish history, Davitt's lesser-known freelance political career after 1882, during which he engaged with a diverse range of issues and causes, from the Boer War to Zionism, reveals a much more complex and, at times, contradictory political figure than that previously represented in Irish historiography. This book, the first sustained study of Davitt's political career in its totality, views him in a broad political context of labour activism and international radicalism.
