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 a 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.

Die Sozialwissenschaften sind durch einen Theorien- und Methodenpluralismus gekennzeichnet. Doch was unterscheidet eigentlich genau verschiedene Sozialtheorien? Welche Unterschiede gehen auf differierende Erklärungen desselben Gegenstandes zurück, welche sind eher begrifflicher Natur? An welchen Stellen lassen sich trotz großer methodologischer Unterschiede ähnliche Erklärungen und Beschreibungen finden? Der Band versucht auf diese Fragen mithilfe eines fallbezogenen Theorienvergleichs Antworten zu geben. Verschiedene sozialtheoretische Ansätze liefern aus ihrer Perspektive einen Beitrag zur Erklärung spezifischer Aspekte des Nordirlandkonflikts. Der Band kann auch zur fallbezogenen Einführung in ausgewählte Sozialtheorien dienen.

A History of Suicide Bombing

"The only comprehensive history available of suicide bombing from its origins in Imperial Russia to the current day, The Business of Martyrdom examines the bombers, their societies, and the organizations that train and sponsor them. Writing for a broad audience, Lewis draws on the history and philosophy of technology in order to explain the evolution and diffusion of suicide bombing across time and from region to region. Lewis presents a model for suicide bombing that integrates individual psychology, organizational motivations, and social support. He argues that suicide bombing is a technology that has been invented and re-invented at different times in different areas, but always for the same purpose: resolving a mismatch in military capabilities between antagonists by utilizing the available cultural and human resources."--Book jacket.
