Sinn Féin and the IRA

From Revolution to Moderation

First Edition

Matthew Whiting

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Assesses Irish republicanism's strategic process of moderation, from violence to peace and power
  • Draws on a wide range of original data, including interviews with former leading British and Irish politicians and civil servants; original material produced by republicanism over a 40-year period; and the latest available archival material from Britain, Ireland and Northern Ireland
  • Reassesses British policy towards the management of the conflict in Northern Ireland
  • Rigorously evaluates where Sinn Féin stands today in terms of achieving its goal of a united Ireland
  • Raises important implications for how other non-state armed groups moderate, for the study of state responses to violent separatism and for studies of comparative peace processes
