War & Peace in Ireland: Britain and the IRA in the New World Order
Can the Downing Street Declaration bring an end to centuries of conflict and 25 years of war in the North of Ireland? In this book, the author addresses these crucial questions. Criticizing the narrow presentation of the Irish conflict as the legacy of ancient and tribal hatreds, Ryan shows how international developments have shaped Irish politics, past and present.
