Overview

The H Block protest is one of the strangest and most controversial issues in the tragic history of Northern Ireland.

Republican prisoners, convicted of grave crimes through special courts and ruthless interrogation procedures, campaigned for political status by refusing to wear prison clothes and daubing their cell with excrement.

Were they properly convicted criminals, or martyrs to political injustice?

In this masterpiece of investigative journalism, Coogan provides us with the only first-hand account of the protest. His investigation led deep into the social, cultural, and economic maze of Northern Ireland's history to give readers an unmatched analysis of a troubled place and its sorrowful history.
