Learning behind Bars is an oral history of former Irish republican prisoners in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland between 1971, the year internment was introduced, and 2000, when the high-security Long Kesh Detention Centre/HM Prison Maze closed. Dieter Reinisch outlines the role of politically motivated prisoners in ending armed conflicts as well as the personal and political development of these radical activists during their imprisonment.


Based on extensive life-story interviews with Irish Republican Army (IRA) ex-prisoners, the book examines how political prisoners developed their intellectual positions through the interplay of political education and resistance. It sheds light on how prisoners used this experience to initiate the debates that eventually led to acceptance of the peace process in Northern Ireland. Politically relevant and instructive, Learning behind Bars illuminates the value of education, politics, and resistance in the harshest of social environments.

Gerry Moriarty, <em>Irish Times</em>

«

"..with its chronological panorama, and the geographical and organisational range of its interview partners, Reinisch’s book offers a valuable perspective on the experiences of republican prisoners at the periphery of the movement… his book is of undoubted value for scholars of the Northern Ireland conflict and, more broadly, for analysts of incarceration and the internal dynamics of militant social movements."

Jack Hepworth, St Catherine’s College, Oxford, <em>Oral History Journal</em>

«

"This is an important account of the role of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) prisoners who were imprisoned on both sides of the Irish border who were instrumental in starting the critical debate that ultimately contributed to resolving the Northern Ireland conflict through the 1994 Provisional (IRA) ceasefire and the Good Friday Agreement of 1998."

Joshua Sinai, <em>Perspectives on Terrorism</em>

«

"Drawing on the experience of learners and employing a framework which enables generalisations to be made from the particularities of Ireland, Dieter Reinisch makes a powerful case for the value of education in prisons for prisoners, prisons, and the wider society."
