Irish Unionism


Irish Unionism was originally published by James Winder Good in 1920. The book explores the role of the Anglo-Irish Protestant landowning elite and unionism in the economic, political and social life of Ireland in the nineteenth century and early twentieth century against the backdrop of the Home Rule and the independence movements. Good (1877-1930) had been educated at the Royal Academical Institution and Queen’s College, Belfast (now Queen’s University Belfast). A reporter for the Northern Whig, he then moved to Dublin where he worked for the Freeman’s Journal, Irish Statesman and Irish Independent and acted as the correspondent for English and American newspapers. His books include ‘Ulster and Ireland’ as well as ‘Irish Unionism’.
