Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams offers a unique, intimate account of his childhood in working-class Belfast and the turbulent years of social activism that followed. First published in 1996 - at a time when politics in the North was at an impasse, and the Good Friday Agreement was still many intense months away - Before the Dawn tells of the pogroms of 1969 and the hunger strikes of 1981, moving from the streets of West Belfast to the cages and the H-Blocks of Long Kesh. An engaging and revealing self-portrait that is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand modern Ireland. Updated with a new introduction and epilogue.

MEDIA REVIEWS

timely

-- RTE Guide

`A definitive history of the Irish struggles of the 1970s, from the nationalist point of view. Adams, a fine writer, presents a straightforward, unapologetic memoir.'

Publishers Weekly


`Gerry Adams is a gifted writer who, if he were not at the centre of the war-and-peace business, could easily make a living as an author.' The New York Times


One of the most controversial but important political memoirs of recent times.

-- Publishing News

`One thing about him is certain: Gerry Adams is a gifted writer who, if he were not at the centre of the war-and-peace business, could easily make a living as an author, of fiction or fact.'

The New York Times
