Product description


As Ireland, North and South, traverses its 'decade of centenaries' John F Morrison's study of dissident republicanism is particularly timely. Based on an extensive set of interviews with leaders and rank and file republicans it is the both analytically impressive and historically aware. It demonstrates how splits within republicanism have been essential to its ultimate embracing of peaceful methods whilst not eradicating its continuing potential for violence. --Henry Patterson, Professor of Politics at the University of Ulster, Ireland

A welcome addition to a growing number of studies of political violence that explore the organizational dynamics of undergrounds. This authoritative analysis of factionalism within the Irish Republican movement shows how divisive questions of identity can be. The author presents a compelling account of how the long-term politicization of republicanism both caused and depended on the internal process of splintering into the dissident factions that threaten the peace today. --Martha Crenshaw, Senior Fellow, Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC), Stanford University, USA
