Meet the Author

Alice Stopford Green (1847-1929) was an Irish historian, writer, and nationalist politician.  Wife of historian John R. Green, she assisted his work as well as pursuing an independent career.  She is best remembered for The Making of Ireland and its Undoing (1908), in which she brought a frankly nationalist sensibility to her meticulous historical research.
