I found this book to be an outstanding outline of Pearse's life and work.
This is a psychoanalysis of Patrick Pearse who was a barrister, teacher, and leader of the 1916 Irish uprising. The book chronicles his life in a very different perspective than any other books I've read about him. I find it dissapointing because it paints a somewhat unflattering picture of my personal hero. Anyone who is REALLY into Irish history would probably want to own this book.
