W. T. Cosgrave has been neglected by scholars in comparison with other twentieth century Irish leaders. This biography by a leading Irish historian uses sources not previously consulted to examine Cosgrave's career as local politician, rebel, minister, head of government for nearly ten years, and opposition leader. In particular it assesses his role as a state-builder and a key figure in the Irish democratic tradition.
