9780863223709: An Irish Eye

In A Farther Shore (2003), Sinn Féin president Adams narrated the roller coaster of politics and diplomacy that culminated in the Good Friday Agreement, the historic commitment to peaceful means in resolving the Troubles of Northern Ireland. Collecting three years of editorials, eulogies, speeches, and even some verse (in Irish) written since 2004, his latest selection presents Adams' recent commentary on a continuing peace process that has seen major milestones (IRA disarmament) even as it has moved at a sclerotic pace. Most of this book's pieces are occasioned by news items, political developments, or particularly poignant anniversaries, and as such they provide readers with a broad-spectrum view of Adams doing what he does best: arguing passionately for republicanism while reminding his audience that the Troubles are one of many social-justice challenges facing Ireland and the rest of the world. Although many pieces reveal the author's ample wit, more than a few also capture Adams in a pensive posture. He is perhaps most elopquent when writing in remembrance of the dead. Readers unfamiliar with recent politics in Northern Ireland will appreciate the included time line and glossary."" -Booklist 12/01/07 ""[Adams] tells this story with clarity, and with much more sly wit than one normally expects from politicians"" --Irish America Magazine

About the Author:

President of Sinn Fein and TD for Louth, Gerry Adams has been a published writer since 1982. His books have won critical acclaim in many quarters and have been widely translated. His writings range from local history and reminiscence to politics and short stories, and they include the fullest and most authoritative exposition of modern Irish republicanism. Born in West Belfast in 1948 into a family with close ties to both the trade union and republican movements, Gerry Adams is the eldest of ten children. His mother was an articulate and gentle woman, his father a republican activist who had been jailed at the age of sixteen, and he was partly reared by his grandmother, who nurtured in him a love of reading. His childhood, despite its material poverty, he has described in glowing and humorous terms, recollecting golden hours spent playing on the slopes of the mountain behind his home and celebrating the intimate sense of community in the tightly packed streets of working-class West Belfast. But even before leaving school to work as a barman, he had become aware of the inequities and inequalities of life in the north of Ireland. Soon he was engaged in direct action on the issues of housing, unemployment and civil rights. For many years his voice was banned from radio and television by both the British and Irish governments, while commentators and politicians condemned him and all he stood for. But through those years his books made an important contribution to an understanding of the true circumstances of life and politics in the north of Ireland. James F. Clarity of the New York Times described him in the Irish Independent as "A good writer of fiction whose stories are not IRA agitprop but serious art."

Descripción O Brien Press Ltd, Ireland, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The recent years covered by this unique book have seen momentous developments in Irish republicanism and in the politics of Ireland as a whole. From the IRA decision in 2005 to formally end its armed campaign and to put its arms beyond use to the Sinn Fein decision in January 2007 to support the policing and justice system, unparralleled historic change has taken place. In An Irish Eye, Adams brings to life his own perspective to bear on these developments in articles and speeches he has written as events unfolded. An accomplished writer as well as polical leader, he describes events, in which he has played such a significant role with insight, passion and humour. He gives the reader an unrivalled insight into pivotal movements of our recent history, and he takes the reader behind the scenes to witness events that continue to shape Irish society today. Including as it does Adams historical appeal to the IRA and his call on Sinn Fein to support the policing and justice system, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Irish politics now. It is not just about the peace process, including observations about visits to the Basque country, the Middle East, South Africa and the USA. He also comments on the Celtic Tiger and other aspects of life in Ireland today; he takes a verbal poke at the establishment; he includes a handful of poems he has written in Irish, and he gives us a peak as some personal and humorous episodes as well as the more serious life and death issues.
