BeschreibungThese eleven essays explore various aspects of Irish republicanism, north and south, from the early twentieth century to today. An awareness of history, and its uses, has long been a notable characteristic of modern Irish republicanism. Some of the topics covered include republicanism and democracy, paramilitarism, IRA veterans, the IRA and its relationship with Nazi Germany, and the mentality of extreme republicanism.
