Few figures in British and Irish history continue to incite as much controversy and passion as the Irish rebel, Roger Casement. Although Britons now distantly remember him as a "traitor, " he is still revered in Ireland as a founding father of the Irish state. During his brief life, Casement carried out two remarkably courageous atrocity investigations on behalf of the British Foreign Office, setting new standards for the cause of human rights. Later in his life, he devoted himself openly to the cause of Irish independence, for which he was ultimately brought to trial in London and executed for high treason.
From the Publisher:
Roger Casement's revolutionary fire was lit in the Congo where he saw at first hand some of the worst abuses of the colonial project. The fire burned hotter in Brazil, where he gradually became convinced that exploitation and abuse were inextricably linked with the exercise of imperial power.
