Dissident Irish Republicanism

By Martyn Frampton

This is the first book to examine the history of dissident Irish republicanism as it has developed over the last two decades. It does so by putting dissident republicanism in historical context and then exploring its evolution - particularly against the background of the Northern Irish peace process and Good Friday Agreement. The book shows why the flame of militant, violent Irish republicanism still burns by taking an in-depth look at the thinking that inspires those who adhere to its ideology. To this end, the author has conducted interviews with members from the political wings of several leading dissident groups.
