Rezension:


"[A] definitive history of the IRA" -- The New York Review of Books


"This is a very fine book. It is elegant and persuasively argued from a man who really does know what he is talking about. The long view of Richard English is vital in an age of the knee-jerk."--Fergal Keane, BBC Special Correspondent


"Richard English is the author of outstanding histories of the IRA and Irish nationalism.

"If you want to read one book which explains the phenomenon of terrorism, gives you a good historical grasp of the subject while also providing a dispassionate roadmap to guide you through the term's complex meanderings and its many intellectual cul-de-sacs, then this is the book for you.

"'thoughtful, informed meditation on the state of terrorism research."--Foreign Affairs

"a thought-provoking primer for politicians seeking someth
