In both cases, political violence was foresworn in favor of a new strategy of inter-group bargaining and compromise. The political standpoints have deep historical roots, and this book examines them systematically. It brings together Irelands leading specialists in the area--drawn from historians, political scientists and sociologists--and seeks to provide historical depth to the debate about contemporary paramilitary violence.
