Sinn Fe  n

Sinn Féin ("ourselves alone") is one of the most controversial political movements in Ireland. Here, for the first time, is the complete story of the rise and fall?and rise again?of a party that repeatedly has reshaped its identity over the course of a hundred years, moving from dual monarchy to dual strategy?the gun and the ballot box. From Arthur Griffith to Gerry Adams, this is a roll-call of major personalities from Irish and British history and politics, including Eamon de Valera, Countess Constance Markievicz, David Lloyd George, Michael Collins, Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, Cathal Goulding, Tomás MacGiolla, Margaret Thatcher, and Martin McGuinness. Now at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Sinn Féin seems poised to play a pivotal role in the Irish political arena, north and south, well into the future. Its place in history is still being written. Copublished with the O'Brien Press, Dublin. The Wisconsin edition is for sale only in North America and the Philippines.
