  • American Political Trials [top]
    Revised, Expanded Edition edited by Michal R. Belknap
    Published in 1994 in the United States by Greenwood Publishing Inc. in hardcover (Contributions in American History, Number 152; ISBN 0313286876
    Published in 1994 in the United States by Praeger Publishers in paperback, 323pp, ISBN 0275944379

About this book/synopsis: This is an updated and revised edition of a work originally published in 1981 of the same name; and it examines the role of politicised criminal trials and impeachments in U.S. history from the early colonial era to the late 20th Century. Each chapter looks at a different trial that is representative of a particular era in the American past.

Emphasis is put on those cases that resulted from political persecution, but the book also shows how defendants have been able to exploit the judicial process to further their respective political causes and objectives. All of the chapters appearing in the earlier 1981 book have been updated. New chapters are included on the 1637 trial of Anne Hutchinson and the 1989 trial of Lt. Col. Oliver North which sprang from his role in the Iran-Contra scandal. The bibliography has been updated also.

  • Politics and Performance in Contemporary Northern Ireland [top]
    Edited by John P. Harrington and Elizabeth J. Mitchell
    First published in 1999 in the United States by The University of Massachusetts Press in cooperation with the American Conference for Irish Studies, in paperback, 234pp, ISBN 155849197x . Cover art by Rita Duffy; Cover Design by Sally Nichols

About this book: In the charged political atmosphere of Northern Ireland, where two national identities compete for recognition and support, symbolic manifestations of the struggle are everywhere evident. They continue beyond as well as within the confines of the theater. Stage actors and social actors, playwrights and politicians give performances scripted to confirm and consolidate their particular definition of political reality. In this interdisciplinary volume, scholars from Northern Ireland, the United States, Canada and England examine the junctures of politics and performance in contemporary Northern Ireland. Four of the chapters are about performances that are intended primarily for live theater or television. The remaining five describe dramatic struggles played out in the pubs and drinking clubs of Protestant Ulster, local district councils, political organizations, the police force, and even the memories of young people. Symbolic struggle is particularly important during the current period of fragile cease-fires and brokered agreements in Northern Ireland. With the decrease in paramilitary action, more attention now focuses on symbolic performances. Each of the nine essays in this book tells us in its own distinct voice how the story of political conflict is constructed, manipulated, portrayed, and remembered.

About this book: Charles J. Haughey is Ireland's leading statesman. Twice Taoiseach, since 1979 leader of Fianna Fail, Ireland's largest political party, and holder of a series of key cabinet positions stretching back to 1961, he speaks with unrivalled experience and authority on the major problems confronting the Nation. Inheriting the mantle of Eamon de Valera and of Sean Lemass, Charles Haughey has throughout his political career stimulated economic progress, promoted the reform and modernisation of Irish society with a special emphasis on social justice, and has sought to achieve a peaceful, stable, united Ireland, which continues to treasure its distinctive values and cultural traditions. This volume of speeches makes an important contribution to the understanding of modern Ireland and of its transformation since the late 1950s. Seen through the perspective of Charles Haughey's ministerial career in the 1960s, it is possible to trace how Ireland overcame the severe depression and stagnation of the mid-1950s. As Minister for Justice, he implemented a major programme of law reform. As Minister of Agriculture, he played a key role in opening up markets under the Anglo-Irish Free Trade Area Agreement. The most creative Minister for Finance in Ireland since the foundation of the State, he was the last Minster for Finance in the Republic who adhered to the basic principle of a balanced budget. As Minister for Health and Social Welfare from 1977 to 1979, he initiated important health and welfare reforms. In the 1970s, Ireland moved into more turbulent times, and faced difficult political and economic challenges arising from the renewed outbreak of troubles in the North and the economic effects of inflation and the world oil crisis. Charles Haughey was forced onto the political sidelines for a period which enabled him to reflect more deeply on the major political problems, and to further develop his political philosophy.

Once he had become leader of Fianna Fail and Taoiseach in 1979, Charles Haughey did his utmost to protect Ireland from the worst effects of the second worldwide recession while, at the same time, taking steps to modernise Irelands's deficient infrastructure. He succeeded in placing the Northern Ireland problem in a new context, and securing recognition of the fact that Northern Ireland is in itself a failed political entity, and that no proposals which do not recognise that reality could succeed in bringing peace and stability.

The Spirit of the Nation includes major statements on Northern Ireland; the economy; unemployment and taxation, law reform, agriculture, health and social welfare, the EEC, nuclear disarmament, the status of women, culture, science and virtually every other important aspect of Irish political life over the 25 years preceeding this book's publication in 1986. The importance of this material for a student of Irish politics and International Politics in the 20th century cannot be stressed enough; it is invaluable. The speeches also point clearly to the future and to the policies and solutions that were felt at the time to be necessary to achieve future peace and prosperity in Ireland

About the Editor: Martin Mansergh has been Head of Research in Fianna Fail since July 1981. After studying politics, philosophy and economics and completing research for a D. Phil on French Political History at Oxford and following a period working on the family farm in Tipperary, he joined the Department of Foreign Affairs in 1974, where he served in the Political and Economic Divisions, as well as in the Embassy, Bonn, before joining the Department of the Taoiseach in January 1981. During Mr. Haughey's 1982 Administration, he was appointed as Special Advisor on Northern Ireland. Fionnula O'Kelly used to be Press Officer at Fianna Fail since September, 1981. She was educated throught he medium of Irish at St. Louis Convent, Monaghan, and studied modern languages at UCD. She later became head of Government Information Services under Fianna Fail in the 1980s and early 1990s; marrying Taoisearch Enda Kenny in 1992 - their paths crossed first of all in the Dail Eireann
