374 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). "Nearly twenty years after the present wave of conflict began in Northern Ireland, the Provisional IRA is still an active destabilising force within the United Kingdom. Yet despite the huge loss of life and the consequent political distortions and upheavals it has created, remarkably little is known about it. This authoritiative new book, the first full-length study to be undertaken since the Troubles began in 1969, examines the IRA in depth, analysing its leaders, its objectives and structure. Aided by numerous, unusually frank interviews with the men who run the organisation and key figures in the Security Forces, the authors trace the IRA's progression from disarray in the early 1960s to powerful political force in the late 1980s. They explore the movement's inner workings, explaining the commitment and life of its participants and shedding new light on some of the recent landmarks in the often bloody history of Republicanism; internment, the hunger strikes, the mainland bombing campaign, the development of the IRA's dual strategy of 'armalite and ballotbox'. (A) uniquely informative and thought-provoking book, one which will itself prove a landmark in the study of Irish history." Faint cigarette odour, light waviness to edges of textblock, minor wrinkling to top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price clipped, has very light edgewear, very light edge wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing.
