‘Michael Collins, Himself’ focuses on the man behind the mask. Not the soldier, statesman or guerrilla but the real, human,
Michael Collins. This unique approach offers insights into Collins’ personal life and the crucial role women had to play in it; his likes, dislikes, interests and personality; and includes the memories and anecdotes of members of his family and
descendants of those who knew him. The book is accompanied by photographs of the man himself at all ages, as well as places and people associated with him.
