Justin McCarthy (1830-1912) was a Victorian writer and politician whose literary output included historical novels, biographies, and a comprehensive history of his own times. His novels often intertwined with his political interests, reflecting his advocacy for Irish rights and self-governance, and they were popular for their accessible style and engaging narratives. Among his notable works are A History of Our Own Times, which chronicles the events of Victorian Britain, and The Dictator, a political novel that explores issues of power and governance. McCarthy also wrote several biographies, including those of prominent figures such as Sir Robert Peel and Pope Leo XIII.
