A Secret History of the IRA by Ed Moloney

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 worlds oldest and most ruthless terrorist groups was maneuvered into ending its thirty-year war with Britain. Filled with revelations -- including the IRAs long and astonishing associations with Qaddafis regime, Margaret Thatchers secret diplomacy with Gerry Adams, the Catholic Churchs 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 Adamss 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 reporters eye to a tangled history often baffling to outsiders.
