The New Politics of Sinn Féin is an assessment of the ideological and organizational development of Provisional republicanism since 1985. The book explores how the Republican movement has changed from an anti-state insurgency to a potential partner in governing the state it was pledged to destroy. In particular, the book attempts to consider the origins of what has become known as ‘New Sinn Féin’.

Kevin Bean is Lecturer in Irish Studies at the University of Liverpool.

The New Politics of Sinn Féin contains by far the best material on the transitions within Irish Republicanism that I have read. There are undoubtedly books on Irish republicanism but NONE has reviewed the ideological shifts that have taken place as coherently as Kevin.
