United Ireland, Human Rights and International Law
Francis A. Boyle (Author)
DescriptionDuring the past three decades, Francis Boyle has dealt with some of the most difficult problems created by Britain's continued military occupation of six northeast counties in Ireland: * Proving that the "Potato Famine" was really British genocide against the Irish; * Britain's obligation to decolonize Northern Ireland; * I.R.A. resistance and Joe Doherty; * the anti-Irish U.S.-U.K. Supplementary Extradition Treaty (1986) and U.S.-U.K. Extradition Treaty (2006); and * the MacBride Principles on Northern Ireland; the Great Grandson of Major John MacBride; etc. The book concludes with a legal and human rights framework for establishing a United Ireland where all Irish can live in peace with justice for all irrespective of their differences. This book is required reading for Irish Americans, people living in Ireland, and the Irish Diaspora around the world.
