Not worth owning or even getting from the library. A purchase I regret making. Many of the essays are just hagiography--positive and uncritical accounts of the life of Collins and the lives of many of those around him. A couple of decent ones but buried in dross.

A wonderful collection of essays that actually covers more than just Michael Collins' involvement in the Revolution and establishing of the Republic. I loved the different perspectives that were used to explain such a turbulent time. Very informative.
