"Anyone shocked by the title of the book should devote some time to this extraordinary narrative and ask themselves at the end whether it exaggerates or in truth underestimates what really happened." — Paul Foot.

In April 2003, the Stevens Report provided the first official acknowledgement of collusion between loyalist armed groups and British security forces in the murders of nationalists in Northern Ireland.Yet, as this book demonstrates, such collusion and associated conspiracies have been a central feature of the British response to the conflict in Ireland for more than thirty years. That response, argues Paul Larkin, amounts to a Holy War, or Jihad, in the name of Protestantism and the British monarchy. That war has been swathed in secrecy and denial, protected by notions of 'national security' that pervade every corner of the legal system and the political establishment - a very British Jihad.

Award winning investigative journalist Paul Larkin made the first of many films for Spotlight - BBC Northern Ireland's current affairs programme - in February 1989. It was about the murder of Pat Finucane. Since then Larkin has covered other controversial killings, RUC cover-ups, the burgeoning illicit drugs trade, the role of informers and agents, and the notorious Portadown based Yatpack'. He went on to produce a special investigation into the Dublin/Monaghan bombings for RTE.

The research for these films was the raw material for this book. Building on his earlier investigations, Larkin presents a detailed and revealing account of many aspects of Britain's 'dirty war'.
He provides a unique insight into the dangers and political pressures facing journalists who dare to investigate the unsavoury relationships between the intelligence agencies, politicians, the police, the British Army and loyalism.

About the Author:

I am a freelance writer/novelist, translator and film director

Major films, books, translations and awards:

In 1997, I won the European Journalist of the Year award. This award was in recognition of the film series "The Gap In The Mountain" which looked at Ireland's relationship with Europe. I wrote and directed the six part television series which also won the film documentary section in the same awards.

In 2003, I wrote A Very British Jihad - Collusion, Conspiracy in Northern Ireland.  The book was published by Beyond The Pale, Belfast and is now out of print, though it is available as a Kindle book.

In 2007 I wrote and directed a film about Ireland's Flight of The Earls - Imeacht na nIarlaí. This film, starring Stephen Rea won a major award in New York where I picked up the Best Director of an International Documentary at the New York Independent Film Festival in 2008.

In 2009, I completed a new translation from Norwegian to English of Henrik Ibsen's "Et Dukkehjem" (A Doll's House) for the Dublin theatre company Secondage. 

In 2011 I completed a translation of a large number previously unpublished essays by the Danish painter Asger Jorn. These were published in May 2011 by 010 Publishers, Rotterdam - Fraternité Avant Tout: Asger Jorn's Writings on Art and Architecture, 1938-1957  

At the moment, I am engaged in translating Danish writer Henrik Pontoppidan's most famous work - Lykke Per - Lucky Per or in my version - A Fortunate Man. The translation is being done in conjunction with (and the approval of) the Pontoppidan Society in Denmark with the intention that it will become the definitive work in English. More long term, it is hoped that Pontoppidan's famous trilogy of novels (as yet not translated to English), of which Lykke Per/A Fortunate Man is a part, will be made available in English.
