Judging Dev by Diarmaid Ferriter

Eamon de Valera has often been characterised as a stern, un-
bending, devious and divisive Irish politician. But how valid is this
caricature? In Judging Dev, Diarmaid Ferriter re-examines de
Valera’s life and legacy. Using previously unpublished letters,
documents and photographs from the UCD Archives and the
National Archives of Ireland, he chronicles Dev’s extraordinary
career and his crucial role in the history of the Irish state.
