From fanatical, revolutionary street politician in perpetual danger of arrest and assassination, Adams became a political leader with access to the British and Irish Prime Ministers and the US President, and a key player in the delicate work of peace-making. While admired as a statesman around the world, he is still reviled by many at home who believe he is a liar, a terrorist, and that thousands might have been spared horrible deaths if he had come to peaceful ideas earlier.Drawing on newly available intelligence and scores of interviews, Malachi O'Doherty has crafted a meticulously researched biography of this extraordinary shape-shifter.
A compelling appraisal of one of the most controversial figures in Irish politics that draws on exclusive new interviews and intelligence.
