Séamas Ó Sìocháin gives us an enthralling book equal to the expansive life of its subject. In its meticulous scholarship it supersedes all previous work in the field. Drawing upon an astonishing trove of official and personal sources, Ó Sìocháin shows how what began as an ordinary career in the British consular service became a singular crusade across three continents, against exploitation, cruelty and injustice.

Roger Casement was bom in 1864 in Dublin to an Ulster protestant family. I signed the Resident's book and subsequently called on the District Officer. He served in the British Consular/Colonial Services for about twenty years in West Africa, the Congo and Portuguese African territories. The latter apologised for not putting me up during my visit. He explained that the guest wing of the house was occupied by a fellow countryman of mine. This biography by Seamas O Siochain must surely be the definitive life of this exceptional man. It gives impressions of Casement by such diverse people as Randall Davidson, Archbishop of Canterbury, Joseph Conrad, Edmond Morel and Conan Doyle.

Rodolfo Walsh, Ken Saro Wiwa and Chico Mendes are all recent examples; Roger Casement, who spent much of his life drawing attention to unspeakable truths, is another. Síocháin has also done much to explain some of the ‘patterns of thought’, notably his metamorphosis into an enemy of empire. For most of this book we are confronted by an exceptionally ethical and motivated individual, who thought about the world in a remarkably contemporary way.

Drawing on a trove of official and personal sources, O Siochain shows how what began as an ordinary career in the British consular service became a singular crusade, on three continents, against exploitation, cruelty and injustice. Roger Casement served in the Niger, Mozambique, Angola, and, most momentously, in the Congo, where he witnessed the appalling crimes under Belgian colonial rule and was a key player in the humanitarian campaign that exposed them, forcing King Leopold II to surrender his personal control of the colony. Casement later levelled the same moral compass at the depressingly similar exploitation of natives of the Putumayo, where, as in the Congo, outsiders' hunger for rubber created misery for an indigenous people. His growing interest and involvement in Irish affairs, culminating in his attempts to aid the 1916 Rising and his execution for treason, is narrated here. In an epilogue, O Siochain examines the question that has dominated Casement's afterlife: whether his black diaries, detailing homosexual adventures, were forged by the British in order to discredit him at his trial for treason and effect a judicial assassination.
