Out of stock
In The Barbarous Irish: The Ethics of an Insurgency 1968-1998, Dr Conn Mac Gabhann applies these criteria to the IRA insurgency of the late 1960s and early 1970s and shows convincingly how that conflict has been misunderstood and misrepresented by the media, leading academics and historians as well as by prominent figures in Church and State.
This has led to the common assumption that the campaign by Republican insurgents was morally baseless.
Dr Mac Gabhann challenges this assumption by exploring a narrative from within the minority population which includes that community’s experience of oppression and the moral reasoning which motivated some from within it to take up arms.
