'Terror In Ireland: The Heritage of Hate' is probably not Mr. O'Ballance's best work; his actual writing was up to his usual high standard, but unfortunately there are some problems with the content. It is possible that Mr. O'Ballance had a political axe to grind, but it appears more likely to me that the difficulty here was inadequate research exacerbated by reliance on slanted and biased sources. Either way, the result is a seriously flawed book with multiple errors and/or distortions of fact. It is, just barely, worth reading; however I would suggest that anyone without previous in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Irish situation would undoubtedly be better served by reading a different work.
