Summary
Geraghty, a British subject, an Irish citizen, a writer and a military advisor, explores the roots of the civil war in Northern Ireland since the Battle of the Boyne (1690), paying particular attention to the last 30 years of violence. Drawing on public and classified sources, as well as interviews with members of British intelligence, British military sources, Unionist paramilitaries, and the IRA, the book reveals the conflict to have expanded to include convert operations, surveillance, and brutal interrogation techniques. The author was arrested in 1998 for violating Britain's Official Secrets Act because he wrote in this book about computer programs used by British security to profile suspected terrorists. The case was dismissed a year later. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
