Long Affair by Conor Cruise O'Brien Long Affair, Paperback (June 2015)

Thomas Jefferson, American Minister to France 1785-9, was an enthusiast for the French Revolution and believed its virtues could be exported back to an America that had waned morally since its own great revolutionary 'moment'. This book deals with his life and work.

To Katanga and Back by Conor Cruise O'Brien To Katanga and Back, Paperback (January 2015)

Tells the story of how a brilliant Irish diplomat found himself in Africa amid one of history's maelstroms. This title reconstructs the complex, tragic, sometimes comic events of a drama in which he found himself controversially at centre stage. It presents a study of the game of nations, and of the UN's functioning and malfunctioning.

On the Eve of the Millenium by Conor Cruise O'Brien On the Eve of the Millenium, Paperback (November 1995)

Examines how nationalism and religion are threatening democracy, the rule of the law, and freedom of expression throughout the world. The book points to nations who, by closing their borders to the tide of illegal immigrants, are abandoning their commitment to the international rights of man.

Deaths of Louis XVI by Conor Cruise O'Brien Deaths of Louis XVI, Paperback (July 1994)

Investigates the regicide's pivotal role in French intellectual history and political mythology. This book examines how thinkers on the right and left repudiated regicide and terror, while articulating a compassionate, humanitarian vision, which became the moral basis for the modern French nation. It focuses on the fluidity of political myths.

Connor Cruise O'Brien was born in 1917. A writer and diplomat, he was the United Nations special representative in the Congo in 1961.

One of the most outspoken opponents of the IRA, O'Brien has written a number of treatises against the dangers of the myths of Irish republicanism and, in 1996, he was elected to the Northern Ireland negotiating forum as a member of the new UK Unionist Party. Among his many publications are Parnell and his Party (1957), Writers and Politics (1965), States of Ireland (1972), and The Siege (1986). He published his autobiography, Memoir: My Life and Themes, in 1998.
