Endeavour Press issues Kindle edition of Brian Inglis’s 1974 biography of Roger Casement

Brian Inglis

Neil Langdon Inglis, U. S. General Editor of Interlitq, and a contributor to Issues 18, 19, 20 and 21 of Interlitq and English Writers 1, English Writers 2 and English Writers 3, wishes to announce that Endeavour Press in London has issued a Kindle edition of his father Brian Inglis’s 1974 biography of Roger Casement, the Irish revolutionary executed for treason in 1916.  Sympathetic, but in no way hagiographical, Inglis’s account explores all dimensions of Casement’s life–in particular, Casement’s unsparing investigations of the rubber trade in the Belgian Congo, and atrocities in Latin America.

Passionate but naive, a visionary lacking in sound judgment, Casement was devoted to the cause of Irish freedom, yet spent years as a willing servant of the British Crown–and ended his days disastrously as a supporter of the Kaiser. Inglis quotes at length from Casement’s “Black Diaries,” having concluded they were genuine and an indispensable source of insight into his subject. “Roger Casement” is widely regarded as one of the classic biographies of the 20th century.

In his obituary of Brian Inglis, Richard West writes:

Under the guidance of Inglis, the Spectator became for a time by far the most lively and readable of the weekly papers, as it was once more to be 20 years later. Like the proprietor, Sir Ian (now Lord) Gilmour, Inglis belonged in politics to the centre, critical of the extremists in Labour and the Conservatives, without enthusiasm for Liberals either, at any rate not with a capital letter. Under Inglis’s guidance, the Spectator championed during the 1950s most of the causes that came into law in the 1960s – easy divorce, the relaxation of censorship, the toleration of homosexuality.
