Articles and book reviews, previously published but not out of date, on a variety of subjects and countries (Ireland, South Africa, Nicaragua, Israel) of special interest to the author. The book's title is taken from the lead piece, an essay on the politics of W. B. Yeats. O'Brien is a man of strong views, and he writes with verve and wit. Agree with him or not, one reads him with enjoyment.
