Secret History of the IRA by Ed Moloney

Book Description

Filled with disclosures and based on the author's unprecedented access to the Irish Republican Army, this explosive book sparked controversy when it was first published in hardcover. Delving deeply into the inner workings, furtive plots, and deadly rivalries of the Irish Republican Army, Ed Moloney, who has covered the IRA since the late 1970s, delivers a riveting account of how one of the world's oldest and most ruthless terrorist groups was maneuvered into ending its thirty-year war with Britain. With revelations including the IRA's long and astonishing associations with Qaddafi's regime, Margaret Thatcher's secret diplomacy with Gerry Adams, the Catholic Church's clandestine negotiations with Republican leadership, and hitherto undisclosed activities of the American government under Bill Clinton, A Secret History rewrites, with dramatic results, the story of this intractable conflict. In particular, fascinating material on Adams's Machiavellian rise to power establishes the IRA leader as one of the most complex political figures of our time. Like Thomas Friedman in From Beirut to Jerusalem, Moloney brings a sharply intelligent reporter's eye to a tangled history often baffling to outsiders. #1 international bestseller; A Washington Post 2002 Rave.

Voices from the Grave by Ed Moloney Voices from the Grave, Paperback (October 2010)

Two former paramilitary leaders - one republican, one loyalist - speak with unprecedented frankness about their role in some of the most appalling violence of the Troubles. The author unearths historical evidence about these two leaders.

Secret History of the IRA by Ed Moloney Secret History of the IRA, Paperback (July 2007)

British and Irish had 'got used to' a cold, ferocious, persistent campaign of bombing and terror. At the heart of that campaign lies one man: Gerry Adams. How did a man who condoned atrocities that resulted in numbers of civilian deaths also become the guiding light behind the peace process?
