Interior Rebellion: A History of Irish Republican Splitting

Show Summary Details


Though the dissidents have recently re-emerged as a threat to peace and security, their origins predate even the secret negotiations that led to the recent peace process. This chapter traces the historical origins and evolution of the Real IRA, Continuity IRA and other Irish Republican splinter groups. Drawing on interviews with terrorist leaders, this chapter provides a detailed behind-the-scenes examination of each of the main dissident factions.
