Armed Struggle: The History of the IRA

£14.99

Product description

Richard English's brilliant book offers a detailed history of the IRA, providing invaluable historical depth to our understanding of the modern-day Provisionals, the more militant wing formed in 1969 dedicated to the removal of the British Government from Northern Ireland and the reunification of Ireland. English shows how the Provisionals were born out of the turbulence generated by the 1960s civil right movement. He examines the escalating violence that introduced British troops to the streets of Northern Ireland as well as the introduction of internment in 1971, the tragedy of Bloody Sunday in 1972, and the Hunger Strikes of the early 1980s. Neither romanticizing the IRA nor condemning them outright, Armed Struggle is a balanced, definitive treatment of one of the world's leading revolutionary movements.
