Inhaltsangabe: By the time of his death in 1934, Joseph Devlin, or "Wee Joe" as he was more affectionately known to his constituents, had left an indelible mark on Nationalist politics in Ireland. From humble beginnings, Devlin's star had risen against the tumultuous background of the fall from grace of Charles Stewart Parnell, the protracted negotiations surrounding Home Rule, the Ulster Crisis, the First World War, the Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War, and the slicing of the country in two which came with Partition. Throughout all of this, Devlin was perhaps one of the most significant figures in Irish public life, a thorn in the sides of both the religious and political establishment in Ireland, an admired and influential character at home and abroad, and a man who never lost sight of the needs of the working-class people who elected him to power. This long-overdue biography traces Devlin's life and times from the backstreets of Belfast, through his promotion up the ranks of the Irish Parliamentary Party, to the height of his career at Westminster, until the emergence of a more radical brand of Irish politics brought about his decline. The result is a poignant tribute to a man whose principles eventually rendered him a figure whose time was out of joint.
