A full version of the erotically-charged 1911 Diary over which London threatened an obscenity prosecution.

The volume provides both a comprehensive text of the diaries, with explanations for their cast of characters, famous, infamous, and fleeting, and a context for the author whose significance and seminal role in the political development of independent Ireland has been masked by the debates over authenticity.

A uniquely original look at the Irish patriot and humanitarian, hanged in 1916 for treason. It was the same Casement whose reports in 1904 and 1912 on rubber slavery and genocide in King Leopold's Congo and the Peruvian Amazon, reflected in his diaries, that shocked the world.
