Essentially a book by a former revolutionary turned reformist who was able to take the reigns of Provisional Sinn Fein and steer them in a direction of integration of a revolutionary movement within a British colonial state (the six occupied counties). Essentially detailed his views and justified his actions of the 1986 Ard Fheis which in turn lead to heir recognition of Britain's insistence that they have a right to stay within the six counties of Ireland.
