Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAppointed by Michael Collins as a member of the committee which prepared drafts for the Irish constitution in 1922, Douglas, a Quaker and Irish nationalist, was an active participant during the crucial years from 1916 to 1926. Written in the late 1940s, they provide new insights into the character of some of the emerging political leaders of that time, including material about Douglas's secret meetings with De Valera during the closing stages of the Civil War.
