Paramilitary Imprisonment in Northern Ireland: Resistance, Management, and Release

Front Cover
This book offers a unique analysis of paramilitary imprisonment in Northern Ireland. The central focus of the book is the struggle between inmates and the state concerning the prisoners' assertion of their status as political prisoners. Drawing upon interviews with former Republican and
Loyalist prisoners as well as prison managers and staff, this book locates that experience within the broader theoretical literature on imprisonment.
