“Required Reading for Irish Americans, people living in Ireland and the Irish Diaspora around the world…”
During the past three decades, International legal expert Francis A. Boyle has dealt with some of the most difficult problems created by Britain’s continued military occupation of six northeast counties in Ireland. On some of these matters, he along with other Irish Americans engaged the formidable Irish American domestic lobby in support of the Irish Resistance. In his book, United Ireland Human Rights and International, he examines human rights issues in Ireland including the Irish Potato Famine as British genocide, decolonization of Northern Ireland, Irish freedom-fighter Joe Doherty, the US-UK extradition treaty, the application of the MacBride Principles on Northern Ireland, and a legal and human rights framework for United Ireland. The book is a required reading for Irish Americans, people living in Ireland and the Irish Diaspora around the world. Click here to get a peak inside the book!
