In the Shadow of History

Sinn Féin 1926-70

Agnès Maillot

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Covers a period of the history of Sinn Féin that has not been dealt with in detail by any other book
  • Sheds new light on a chapter of Irish history known as 'The Funds Case' that has not been the object of specific study in academic texts but which was instrumental in redefining Republicanism
  • Provides an insight into the workings of a party out of the limelight but nevertheless instrumental in the making of the present Sinn Féin
  • Relies on original sources, most notably archive material underused by historians and interviews with leaders and activists of the 1960s period
