This book focuses on the experiences of the Irish communities as a consequence of legislation brought in to tackle political violence arising as a result of the troubles in Northern Ireland. Featuring a large number of interviews, and some case studies it is a useful look at one aspect of the consequences of terrorism, namely the experiences of a 'targeted' community and of the effects of legislation. The particular focus in this book is the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act, introduced in 1974 following public outrage at the Birmingham pub bombings. Liberty (National Council for Civil Liberties) collaborated closely with the author and the outcome is that this book is very much an examination about the morality of such a law, and its effect on civil liberties in the UK as a whole, not just the Irish population.
