by Brendan O'Brien
EUR7.99 (6.95)
The history of the Irish Republican Army from its roots in 1916 to the present day is analyzed in this book. Every decade of the IRA's history is discussed, from its high point in 1921, when it became the "legitimate" army of the self-proclaimed Irish Republic and dragged the British government to the negotiating table, to subsequent failures and eventual regroupings. Explored in detail are the current events surrounding the IRA, including the dramatic ceasefire in 1994, Gerry Adams's leadership, peace talks, the Northern Ireland Assembly, and the continuing quest for lasting peace.
