Praise For Biting at the Grave: The Irish Hunger Strikes and the Politics of Despair

In an eloquent and haunting book, O'Malley makes the fanaticism of [the hunger strikers] and their supporters, the obdurate and morally discredited tactics of the British Government and the hopeless combat of the Protestant and Roman Catholic factions in the Northern Ireland struggle explicable, and exposes the politics behind it. —The New York Times Book Review
