Inhaltsangabe: Since the start of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland", working class Protestants have used violence and terror to "defend Ulster from traitorous republicans". Despite being responsible for about half the civilian casualties of the present conflict and despite having subverted major political initiatives, the loyalist paramilitary organizations - The Ulster Defence Association, the Ulster Volunteer Force, the Red Hand Commando and others - have been relatively neglected by scholars. This study, based on extensive interviewing of loyalist terrorists, is a comprehensive survey of a group that is central to the Ulster conflict. "The Red Hand" recounts the history of loyalist terorism, analyzes the motives that inform it, examines the political innovations of the terrorists, critically explores claims of security force collusion with loyalist terror, and concludes by arguing that what appear to be unconnected aspects of loyalist paramilitarism can be understood as having common origins in the problems of trying to use terror to defend, rather than to destroy, the state. The primary importance of the book is in filling a large gap in our understanding of the Northern Ireland conflict; its secondary purpose is to extend our understanding of the relationship between terrorism and the modern state.

Buchbeschreibung Oxford University Press. Paperback. Since the start of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, working-class Protestants have used violence and terror as much as their Catholic counterparts. Yet despite being responsible for half the civilian casualties of the current conflict and having subverted numerous political initiatives, suchloyalist paramilitary organizations as the Ulster Defence Association, the Ulster Volunteer Force, and the Red Hand Commando have been little studied by scholars. Based on extensive interviews, this is the first comprehensive study of loyalist terrorism. Exploring the history and the aims of the various groups, Professor Bruce examines claims of security force collusion with the loyalists and the use of terror to defend rather than destroy the state. Oxford University Press, 1992. An ex-library paperback copy in very good condition. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 3955646
