This study of late nineteenth century Irish political cartoons published in nationalist newspapers and periodicals examines how popular art in the service of propaganda became a primary means to shape public opinion during the first seven years (1879-1886) of Charles Stewart Parnell's struggle to lead the Irish peasantry into Home Rule. These Irish nationalist images are not what we think of as political cartoons today; they were large-format and color, suitable for framing, and placed gratis in the Saturday editions of large-run periodicals that reached an expanding, literate audience.

"... one of the crucial aspects of Dr. Hollander's book is his validation of the importance of caricature itself - not only for the historical record but for its playfulness, spontaneity, expressiveness, and formal invention...." - Professor Paula Harper, University of Miami"
