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? In a masterpiece of investigative journalism, Coogan provides us with the only first-hand account of the protest. His investigation led deep into the social, cultural, and economic maze of Northern Ireland's history to give readers an unmatched analysis of a troubled place and its sorrowful history.

Die Sozialwissenschaften sind durch einen Theorien- und Methodenpluralismus gekennzeichnet. Doch was unterscheidet eigentlich genau verschiedene Sozialtheorien? Welche Unterschiede gehen auf differierende Erklärungen desselben Gegenstandes zurück, welche sind eher begrifflicher Natur? An welchen Stellen lassen sich trotz großer methodologischer Unterschiede ähnliche Erklärungen und Beschreibungen finden? Der Band versucht auf diese Fragen mithilfe eines fallbezogenen Theorienvergleichs Antworten zu geben. Verschiedene sozialtheoretische Ansätze liefern aus ihrer Perspektive einen Beitrag zur Erklärung spezifischer Aspekte des Nordirlandkonflikts. Der Band kann auch zur fallbezogenen Einführung in ausgewählte Sozialtheorien dienen.

This pioneering three-part work is the definitive history of Irish Republican prisoners detained in England’s maximum security prison ‘dispersal system’ during the entire period of the ‘Troubles’. A resurgence of IRA violence in Britain resulted in a steady stream of prisoners that ensured the organisation maintained a significant jail population. Based on private correspondence, British state archives, declassified government documents, international media reports, and memoirs of key protagonists, account is taken of all major riots, roof top protests, sabotage attacks and escape attempts undertaken by the IRA, as well as the little-known ‘blanket protest’ undertaken in several locations in England. Special Category Volume 2 tells the full story of the Wormwood Scrubs ‘riot’ of August 1979, Brixton breakout of December 1980 and the pivotal Albany ‘mutiny’ of May 1983, told for the first time using fresh eye-witness accounts as well as official and public sources. The perspectives of the Irish and British governments, various judiciaries, international legal forums, ‘ordinary decent criminals’ and prisoner solidarity groups are outlined in detail. This ground-breaking book establishes that the ‘prison war’ in England was a far more important IRA theatre of action than hitherto realised.

"The only comprehensive history available of suicide bombing from its origins in Imperial Russia to the current day, The Business of Martyrdom examines the bombers, their societies, and the organizations that train and sponsor them. Writing for a broad audience, Lewis draws on the history and philosophy of technology in order to explain the evolution and diffusion of suicide bombing across time and from region to region. Lewis presents a model for suicide bombing that integrates individual psychology, organizational motivations, and social support. He argues that suicide bombing is a technology that has been invented and re-invented at different times in different areas, but always for the same purpose: resolving a mismatch in military capabilities between antagonists by utilizing the available cultural and human resources."--Book jacket.

A son sets out to make things right and avenge his father’s death in this dark Western noir. Ethan Wilder has been off in the mountains hunting for the last several months. Upon his return to the family Bar Five Ranch, Wilder finds his life in chaos. His brother, Ben, after taking his father’s rifle without permission, has locked his father in the outhouse to avoid punishment. Another brother, Vic, is in jail, accused of beating up a girl in town, and the last of the Wilder brothers, Joel, is up north in Canada, trying to sell horses to the Mounties. Ethan’s father, Jacob, has a reputation in town for raising hell. In his opinion, no man tamed the wilderness with a timid soul, but the newer citizens of the town have now been pushing for the removal of local farmers and ranchers like the Wilders. Things come to a head when his father joins the ranks of local farmers found dead under suspicious circumstances. Ethan has no choice but to turn to revenge to uphold the family name and ensure that the murderers won’t come for him next.

Unruhen bekämpfen, Herzschmerz und Fälle aufklären, die aber nicht vor Gericht gebracht werden dürfen, darin ist Sean Duffy als katholischer Bulle in Nordirland inzwischen Spezialist. Immerhin bekommt er es zum zweiten Mal in seiner Karriere mit einem locked room mystery zu tun, und welcher Bulle – in Nordirland oder sonstwo, katholisch oder nicht – kann das schon von sich behaupten? Die Journalistin Lily Bigelow wird im Hof von Carrickfergus Castle, wo sie sich allem Anschein nach über Nacht hat einschließen lassen, tot aufgefunden. Selbstmord, glaubt man, aber ein paar Dinge geben Sean Duffy zu denken, und er weigert sich, es dabei zu belassen. Duffy findet heraus, dass Bigelow an einer verheerenden Enthüllung in Sachen Korruption und Amtsmissbrauch innerhalb der höchsten Regierungskreise Großbritanniens und darüber hinaus gearbeitet hat. Und so sieht er sich mit zwei schwerwiegenden Problemen konfrontiert: Wer hat Lily Bigelow umgebracht? Und was wollte er oder sie damit vertuschen?
