Summary
  • Irish revolutionary nationalism, initially dedicated to insurgency, quickly descended into less conventional violence. How successive British governments responded to this challenge and the extent of their respect for essential freedoms are the subject of The Fenian Problem
  • Dramatic and tragic rescues of arrested Fenian leaders, the formation of a Fenian squad to assassinate suspected informers and policemen, the bombing of a London prison, public executions of Fenians, the quality of British justice, and the struggle to develop counter-terrorism policies and an effective system of intelligence form the core of The Fenian Problem. Brian Jenkins adds new information to the established narrative of the movement, arguing that it resorted to terrorism in its pursuit of Irish independence
  • Jenkins discusses the parallels between the government's treatment of Fenian prisoners in the 1860s and their handling of the IRA in the 1970s as well as the similarities between the challenges posed by Fenians and those presented by Islamic insurgents, showing that nineteenth-century British and Irish history illuminate contemporary discussions of state security and liberal government responses to terrorism
