Description

Shinners, dissos, and dissenters is a long-term analysis of the development of Irish republican media activism since 1998 and the tumultuous years that followed the end of the Troubles. It is the first in-depth analysis of the newspapers, magazines and online spaces in which strands of Irish republicanism developed and were articulated in a period in which schism and dissent underscored a return to violence for dissidents. Based on an analysis of Irish republican media outlets as well as interviews with the key activists that produced them, this book provides a compelling snap shot of a political ideology in transition as it is moulded by the forces of the Peace Process and often violent internal ideological schism that threatened a return to the 'bad old days' of the Troubles.

Reviews

'Shinners, Dissos and Dissenters is a well-researched and well-written book that offers an important counterpoint to the security studies literature on republican dissidents. With its breadth of historical insight, the book is recommended for those interested in the ideology of Irish republicanism as well as radical or alternative media practices.'
Eileen Culloty, Journal of Irish Studies
