Handbook of Home Rule: Being Articles on the Irish Question by Various.

The issue of Irish home rule was the dominant political question of British and Irish politics in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Published in 1887, this work contains articles on both sides of the issue.

"The object of the writers has been to treat the difficult questions connected with the Government of Ireland in a dispassionate spirit; and the volume is offered to the public in the hope that it may, at a time of warm controversy over passing events, help to lead thoughtful men back to the consideration of the principles which underlie those questions, and which it seeks to elucidate by calm discussion and by references to history." ( TriciaG & Editor's Note)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14518
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

You're in!

You're welcome for launching this. Hopefully we'll get some good interest, so that the project becomes publicly available fairly quickly. :)

Thank you! PL OK.

So, did you realize you'd be reading about post-Civil War American history in a project on Irish home rule? :lol:

To tell the truth, that's why I claimed the chapter. Incredibly interesting!
I would also like to claim sections 25 and 26 (although do I feel a little presumptuous asking to read an essay by Gladstone with my American accent...).

Ah! Well, perfect then! 8-)

Gladstone is yours! We don't worry much about accents, anyway. :)

Hello, Just a few technical questions: my text has footnotes. What is the proper way for reading them? "footnote: see...." "end of footnote"? (Some of the footnotes just cite their sources, some develop a whole argument.)
And as for the many people quoted in my text, I suppose I am to say "quote" and then end with "end of quote"?

The word counts do not include footnotes. I'd prefer they weren't read, but if any of them are SO important that you feel they should not be left out, then yes, "footnote" [footnote text] "end footnote" works.

Regarding the quotes (wow, there are a lot of them!), it's at your discretion. Some of them I wouldn't do quote/end quote because they're short, or it's obvious where the quote begins and ends. For ones that it's less obvious where the quote begins or ends (I find longer quotes are like this), the quote/end quote (or quote/end of quote) would be good.

Clear as mud? Yeah, I thought so. :lol:

Great, it clears things up. I was kind of arriving at the same intuition regarding quotes, after recording the first 4 minutes.
As for footnotes, most are just sources. I'll read the others.
