9781932982749: Good Friday: The Death of Irish Republicanism

Literary Nonfiction. History. Politics. Irish Studies. Foreword by Ed Maloney. GOOD FRIDAY is a compilation of articles written by Anthony McIntyre, one of the most prominent Republican voices in Northern Ireland. It is a contemporaneous commentary on the peace process and the Good Friday Agreement written by the journalist and former political prisoner before the spin masters could have their version of history received as the established wisdom. GOOD FRIDAY challenges the standard Republican narrative and is a much needed historical document for anyone wanting to understand the Irish peace process. It is an indispensable companion book that completes any introduction to Irish republicanism. "As a historian, former member of the IRA and a onetime party activist with extensive contacts...few have been better placed than McIntyre to examine and evaluate the transformation of a political movement from armed insurrectionists to tame reformists.... There is...irreverence in McIntyre's writing that places some of his best pieces in the rascally company of other Irish enragés such as Swift, Shaw and Behan..."—Tommy McKearney, journalist, organiser, former member of the IRA. "Highly intelligent, honest and original. McIntyre's book should be read by anyone with an interest in modern Irish republicanism"—Richard English, author of Armed Struggle: The History of the IRA.
