    Assessing British public opinion at grassroots level, Jackson shows that from the start of the Third Home Rule Bill crisis there was considerable popular interest in the Irish issue, and that the seemingly isolated Curragh army mutiny of 1914 was part of a wider popular movement. He also shows how the campaign of agitation led by Unionist leaders Sir Edward Carson and Andrew Bonar Law exploited patriotic and sectarian resentment at the prospect of Irish Home Rule.
