Haughey Prince Of Power, Connor Lenihan
Haughey - Prince Of Power deals with the enormous shadow Charles J. Haughey cast over Irish public life for a period of more than thirty years.
From the 1960's onwards, Haughey had a personal lifestyle that raised significant doubts about his presence in public life. But quite apart from his image as a ruthless operator, with a seemingly wealthy background, Haughey established impeccable liberal credentials through reforming legislative initiatives.
In this new book, Conor Lenihan gives an intimate insight into the world Haughey mowed in - politics, the arts, and the theatre of power. Central to the book is Haughey's ordeal at the time of the Arms Trial. Haughey was acquitted and the trial paradoxically paved his ultimate route to power.
The author draws from conventional sources and his unique family perspective on the life and times of Charles J, Haughey - a career richly defined by corruption, scandal and the naked pursuit of power.
Condition: Like new. A book that has been read, but looks new. The book cover has no visible wear. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins.
