Format:Paperback
Donal Kerr has provided a masterly and objective account of the provided a masterly and objective account of the attempt made by one of England's greatest prime ministers to solve the 'Irish problem', in which political and religious elements were inextricably linked. The book reveals that Peel's success was greater than he realized. It also shows the weaknesses of his approach: insufficient grasp of the emotional factors involved (chiefly Catholic distrust), bad time, poor consultation, and imposed solutions. A further original feature of the book is that it provides a detailed study of the Irish church on the eve of the Great Famine...its origanization, the relationship between clergy and people, and the careers and characterizations of its bishops.
