3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy History, 22 July 2003
This review is from: A Secret History of the IRA (Paperback)
I found this book to be a daunting read filled with references and appendices which meant that reading had to be carried out at a fairly slow pace. The facts and figures were clearly meticuously researched and the author has tackled a very daunting sublect fairly well. There was no mention at all of the Brighton bombing in the book despite this being one of the pivotal atrocities of armed struggle. The focus of the book is the peace process in Northern Ireland and the evolving policies of the key figures in the process, notably Martin McGuiness and Gerry Adams. The author highlights the change in the republican stance over the years and explains how political chicanery and horse trading were employed to expediate the vision of Adams and McGuiness. This book has some fascinating information but requires diligent reading. Overall, worth a read but heavy going.
