A Secret History of the IRA

19.49

For decades the British and Irish had ‘got used to’ a situation without parallel in Europe: a cold, ferocious, persistent campaign of bombing and terror of extraordinary duration and inventiveness. At the heart of that campaign lies one man: GerryAdams. From the outbreak of the troubles to the present day he has been an immensely influential figure. The most compelling question about the IRA is: how did a man who condoned atrocities that resulted in huge numbers of civilian deaths also become the guiding light behind the peace process? Moloney’s book is now updated to encompass the anxious and uneasy peace that has prevailed to 2007.
