"In a very real sense, Ruairi O Bradaigh can ... be said to be the last, or one of the last Irish Republicans. Studies of the Provisional movement to date have invariably focused more on the Northerners and the role of people like Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness. But an understanding of them is not possible without appreciating where they came from and from what tradition they have broken. Ruairi O Bradaigh is that tradition and that is why this account of his life and politics is so important." --from the foreword by Ed Moloney, author of A Secret History of the IRA "Robert White has produced a fascinating biography, which deserves to be read by anyone with an interest in politics, not just those concerned with fringe republicanism. White, an American academic, has produced a masterpiece of detailed research, in the course of which he had access to the key players and huge archives... This is the gold standard for political biography and, in an age when academics are often more concerned with meeting government targets than serious research, it greatly deserves to be read."--Derek Wall, Red Pepper, November 2006
