A State in Denial
EUR19.50 ($23.15) in stock
The author uses previously secret official documents to explore the tangled web of relationships between the top echelons of the British establishment with loyalist paramilitaries of the Ulster Defense Association and the Ulster Volunteer Force throughout the 1970s and early 1980s in the north of Ireland. It focuses particularly on the British Government's refusal to proscribe the UDA for two decades - probably the most serious abdication of the rule of law in the entire conflict. Previously classified documents show a clear pattern of official denial of the extent and impact of the loyalist assassination campaign.
