Overview

Afterlives: The Hunger Strike and the Secret Offer that Changed History by Richard O'Rawe

By July 1981 four republican hunger strikers had already died in Long Kesh Prison. To outsiders, Margaret Thatcher appeared unbending; yet, far from the prying eyes of the press, her government was making a substantial offer to the prisoners. On 5 July this offer was given to Gerry Adams in Belfast, and relayed to the prison leadership. In this controversial book, O'Rawe documents the four-year war of words that followed. O'Rawe combines a moving and courageous personal record with first-hand documentation. He provides essential background and astringent commentary on the realpolitik of the peace process and republicanism in Northern Ireland today, and its impact upon the country as a whole.
