Desmond O'Malley's career coincided with one of the most intense periods in Irish political life. In this landmark political memoir he offers fresh insights into the events that have shaped Ireland's past and present - the Arms Crisis, the Troubles and the Beef Tribunal among them. Opening in 1970 with his dramatic appointment as Minister for Justice as the Arms Crisis had the country hovering on the verge of anarchy, O'Malley recollects the bruising battles with his nemesis Charles Haughey, his expulsion from Fianna Fail for 'conduct unbecoming a party member', and the foundation of the Progressive Democrats. Known for his strongly held views, Des O'Malley made an indelible mark on Irish public life. He has never been afraid to speak uncomfortable truths or ask awkward questions, and similarly in this much-talked about memoir, he does not hold back
