The author described the various movements – Gaelic, Republican, Labour and Co-operative – which have created the Ireland of to-day, from inside, and from personal acquaintance with the leading figures in each.

Aodh de Blácam (1890–1951) was a  journalist and politician. Born in London of Ulster Protestant parents, he converted to Catholicism and moved in London Irish and separatist circles. In 1914 he moved to Ireland and participated in republican propaganda activities during the civil war. For the next quarter-century his fortunes would be linked closely to those of Éamon de Valera, whom he regarded as the incarnation of his social and political ideals
