Based on thousands of interviews over 35 years with the leaders and members of the Republican movement and the IRA itself, as well as the Irish, British and Americans involved in the Troubles, the focus of this study is on the workings of an organization involved in armed struggle.


'Among the book"s many strengths is its assessment of the application of the IRA's ideology in daily practice of revolutionary war and politics, particularly against the backdrop of the ongoing Northern Ireland peace process.' - Homeland Security Newsletter

'An eye-opening study.' - Ducas
