The Blanket

Edwards' Book Review
Micheailin O'Cinnsealach • 14 December 2003

To the Blanket,

I have read The Blanket since its inception, and I uphold and agree with
dissent as a right of free people. While I do not always agree with the
views expressed in your publication, I enjoy reading it, and I find many
worthwhile articles in it. However, when I read Ruth Dudley Edwards' book
just now, I found it hard to believe it was being offered in any kind
of a republican vehicle at all. It would seem to be more at home on a
loyalist website. One can despise and find fault continually with Gerry
Adams without resorting to smearing Catholic nationalists and their wholly
justified desire and efforts for freedom. I am more than a little surprised
to see the views expressed in this review so prominently displayed in The Blanket. I am also disappointed.
