Description

The very design of the cover of Fionnuala Doran’s “The Trial of Roger Casement” helps explain why many regard her subject as the most intriguing personality involved with the Easter Rising, containing as it does the terms “consul,” “rebel,” “British traitor” and “Irish patriot.”

Having previously been honored for his work in the Congo, he was knighted in 1911 by King George V for his exposure of appalling human-rights abuses in Peru. Just five years later, on Aug. 3, 1916, the former diplomat was executed for treason at Pentonville Prison, London.
