This book examines the use of internment without trial in Northern Ireland between 1971 and 1975. This research provides a more comprehensive account of internment and assesses previously unexplored aspects of its use. The book considers the high politics and intelligence surrounding the introduction of internment and in doing so accepted narratives regarding the measure are challenged. The book also highlights long-term and short-term consequences which developed from the internment period; some of which have not been given adequate consideration before. In addition this book traces the evolution of 'The Troubles' outside of Belfast and Derry/Londonderry between 1970 and 1972. It is argued that the development of the dynamics of the conflict across the whole of Northern Ireland was certainly more gradual and possibly less inevitable than has been previously identified. -- .

'A serious and lucid analysis of one of the most controversial episodes in the history of the British state and army since the end of the war.'
Paul Bew, Emeritus Professor, Queen's University Belfast and author of Ireland: The Politics of Enmity

'This is a forensic analysis of the political and operational consequences of the introduction of internment without trial in Northern Ireland. McCleery has marshalled a wealth of original sources and delivered a valuable contribution to the literature on Northern Ireland's Troubles.'
Edward Burke, Assistant Professor in International Relations, University of Nottingham

'Well-researched and well-argued, this is the go-to book on internment. It makes crucial contributions to our understanding of how and why internment was introduced, as well as to our understanding of internment's impact across Northern Ireland.'
Samantha Newbery, Reader in International Security, University of Salford, Manchester

'This work's greatest contribution lies in the way the evidence it provides substantiates the ideas that some liberal researchers of terrorism (and counterterrorism) have put forward.'
