Reviews

Above the City is a highly enjoyable and illuminating account of how the school grew from modest and hesitant beginnings in a raw colonial world to a 21st-century institution confident of its identity. Written with insight and humour, this is local history with attitude. The well-chosen illustrations enhance Sweetman’s deft tale of a school and a city.”

Bishop in the Dock: the sedition trial of James Liston

 

“Utterly superb.”

Michael King

Bishop in the Dock: the sedition trial of James Liston

“a worthy addition to the literature on the Irish diaspora, and a reminder that what the British thought of as their colonial empire was simultaneously the spiritual empire of the Irish Catholic Church.”
