Abstract

This book examines the grass-roots relationship between the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and the civilian population during the Irish Revolution. It is primarily concerned with the attempts of the militant revolutionaries to discourage, stifle, and punish dissent among the local populations in which they operated, and the actions or inactions by which dissent was expressed or implied. Focusing on the period of guerilla war against British rule from c. 1917 to 1922, it uncovers the acts of ‘everyday’ violence, threat, and harm that characterized much of the revolutionary activity of this period.

Abstract

Terrorism trials are an exceptional opportunity for better understanding and, hence, countering terrorism, since they are often the only place where most if not all of the actors of a terrorist incident meet again, and where the media report and broadcast their respective accounts. Seeing terrorism trials as a stage where legal instruments are used (and abused) to argue the validity of contested political constructs, this study presents a performative perspective to draw attention to the mechanisms and effects of terrorism trials in and outside the courtroom. With a special focus on how the power of these performances may in turn shape new narratives of justice and/or injustice, it offers vital insights into terrorism trials directed involving different types of terrorism suspects, from left-wing to ethno-nationalist and jihadist terrorists, in Spain, Russia, Germany, the Netherlands, and the US.

Abstract

En 1921, l’Irlande du Sud quitta le Royaume-Uni pour devenir un dominion, membre de l’Empire britannique. Il fallut attendre 1949 et la proclamation de son statut de république indépendante pour que les relations entre l’ancienne colonie et l’ancienne métropole commencent à se normaliser. Mais la dépendance irlandaise du Royaume-Uni dans le domaine économique et la question de l’Irlande du Nord montrèrent les limites de cette évolution. Ce n’est qu’à partir de 1973 et de l’adhésion simultanée...
