"In an eloquent and haunting book, O'Malley makes the fanaticism of [the hunger strikers] and their supporters, the obdurate and morally discredited tactics of the British Government and the hopeless combat of the Protestant and Roman Catholic factions in the Northern Ireland struggle explicable, and exposes the politics behind it."--The New York Times Book Review

From Our Editors

"A book equal to the pity and terror of its subject, Padraig O'Malley simplifies nothing and scrutinizes everything. This is not only a heartfelt narrative but a sustained exercise of moral and political intelligence".--Seamus Heaney
