Alvin Jackson on "Judging Redmond and Carson"


Alvin Jackson, the RIchard Lodge Professor of History at the University of Edinburgh, will speak on his new book, Judging Redmond and Carson (Royal Irish Academy, 2018). In this first dual and comparative biography of John Redmond and Edward Carson—senior members of the British parliament who were locked together in combat over Home Rule— Professor Jackson assesses the men as contemporaries would have done. He uses both new approaches and much new evidence to shed fresh light on their sometimes fraught private lives, their professional and political achievements, and their stands on violence and war.
