A Weapon in the Struggle? Loyalist Paramilitarism and the Politics of Auto/biography in Contemporary Northern Ireland
chapterposted on 2016-07-20, 11:07 authored by Stephen Hopkins
This chapter is predicated on the belief that Northern Ireland’s perceived movement towards a ‘post-conflict’ environment has given fresh impetus to the long-established tradition of political auto/biography associated with the historical development of Anglo-Irish relations. Many protagonists or ex-protagonists of the ‘Troubles’ now feel the time is ripe to tell their ‘stories’ to a wider public, to explain their motivations and to try and shape the debate over the rights and wrongs of the conflict.
