Summary
"A detailed, accurate, objective and lively account of the modern IRA and Sinn Fein movements, from the first stirrings of the contemporary armed struggle through to the Good Friday Agreement and after. The book examines Republican policies and activities, and provides a fascinating account of the long, arduous road from arms to politics. It outlines the role of all major players - Adams, McGuinness, O Bradaigh, Thatcher, Major, Kennedy, Hume, Haughey, Blair, Clinton ... It also includes interviews with a wide range of Republican men and women in their strongholds."--BOOK JACKET
