Synopsis : 'I had to sit down and think for a couple of days afterwards, ask myself: are you prepared to face this; it's quite likely that you yourself will get killed in time. Are you really prepared to do this; if not, you better make up your mind, now, not to, or make up your mind to go ahead.' The son of Maud Gonne and and exceuted 1916 revolutionary Major John MacBride, Sean MacBride inherited his parents' revolutionary politics. In this fascinating memoir, he describes those early revolutionary years, bringing them to life with rare skill. MacBride became an anti-Treaty Republican and in the 1930s and 1940s, when he was chief of staff of the IRA, he argued for greater participation in constitutional politics. He founded Clann na Poblachta in 1946, which formed an important component of the inter-party government of 1948-51. A bitter dispute with Minister for Health, Noel Browne, lead to the collapse of the government and the virtual extinction of his party, which period concludes this terrific memoir.
