First published in 1904 and twice reprinted, this book strongly influenced nationalist debate between 1904 and 1921. Its central proposal - the withdrawal of Irish elected representatives from Westminster - was inherited from the Hungarian Franz Deak’s policy of non co-operation with the imperial parliament in Vienna in the 1860s. The idea of the dual monarchy, adopted by Austria and Hungary in 1867 in which each recognised the Austrian Emperor but had separate parliaments, continued to be advocated by a few Irish politicians as late as the 1920s. Griffith also expounds here his protectionist economic views which influenced Irish government policy for several decades.
