Contains Standish James O'Grady's important but little-known pieces from "The Irish Worker", written in 1912-13. Although usually regarded as a Protestant unionist, O'Grady was always a maverick and shared the columns of "The Irish Worker" with socialists such as Jim Larkin and Sean O'Casey.


Introduction by Edward A. Hagan: Chronology of Standish James O'Grady; To the leaders of Our Working People: The Irish Worker columns, 12 October 1912-30 November 1912; Further contributions to The Irish Worker, December 1912-May 1913.


"Ed Hagan, professor of English at Western Connecticut State University, and a stalwart of the Irish studies community in the US, has done us a service by resurrecting a series of articles written by Standish O'Grady." Irish Democrat Dec 2002/Jan 2003 "adds to our knowledge of the complexities of the intellectual fervour of the labour movement at the beginning of the last century." Paidraig O Snodaigh, Books Ireland, Summer 2003 "add[s] significantly to our understanding of O'Grady ... [he] was one of the most stimulating critics of Victorian Ireland; scholars have yet to fully comprehend the extent of his influence and his knack for rubbing ideological sore spots." Irish Economic and Social History 2004 "University College Dublin Press has now published over thirty 'Classics of Irish History'. These contemporary accounts by well known personalities of historical events and attitudes have an immediacy that conventional histories do not have. Introductions by modern historians provide additional historical background and, with hindsight, objectivity." Books Ireland Nov 2007 "Scholars of nineteenth-century Irish and Irish-American politics should reacquaint themselves with these classics, part of a long running and immensely useful series from University College Dublin Press."
