More About This Textbook

Overview

The H Block protest is one of the strangest and most controversial issues in the tragic history of Northern Ireland. Republican prisoners, convicted of grave crimes through special courts and ruthless interrogation procedures, campaigned for political status by refusing to wear prison clothes and daubing their cell with excrement. Were they properly convicted criminals, or martyrs to political injustice? Where does the truth lie? Here, is a masterpiece of investigative journalism, is the only authoritative first-hand account of the H Block protest, updated and expanded for the first U.S. edition. Coogan's investigation led deep into the social, cultural and economic maze of Northern Ireland's history. Ultimately, the H Block question exposed the dilemma of British rule in Ireland, the tensions of a divided community and the roots of Republican violence. Coogan gives a masterly analysis of the history, politics and media debate surrounding the issue, but all of this is related - unforgettably - to the lives of the ordinary people. The reader's feelings are not spared, and the story is made all the more poignant when one considers the horrifying sequel to the H Block protest - the tragic deaths of Bobby Sands and nine other hunger-strikes in 1981.

First published in 1980, here is the account of the H-block protest, one of the most shocking and controversial situations in the tragic history of Northern Ireland. The author spoke to all sides and set down the facts of the protest squarely, as well as the human tragedy behind them. The resulting work, recorded in its entirety, is this unsparing look deep into the social, cultural and economic maze that makes up Northern Ireland's history. 264 pp.
