Political Violence in Ireland

Charles Townshend

In this widely acclaimed study, Charles Townshend reexamines the historical circumstances that generated violence as a habitual part of political dialogue in Ireland. Drawing on an extensive range of original sources, he describes and analyzes the crucial relationship between the use of terror and intimidation by resistance groups and the efforts of government to impose authority by force.
