Synopsis : 'All Hell will break loose,and by God I will lead it'

The fascinating story of the life and work of a man who was a force for change in Irish and Northern Irish politics. Here, Currie pieces together the complex and dramatic machinations that brought Northern Ireland to its current political incarnation, giving a behind-the-scenes account of the people and the events that changed history. Alongside this tale of politics and politicians is the story of the private man, and the violence visited upon his own family because of his career.

Critique: 'insightful, witty, balances, free of score-settling, a mine of rich ore for future historians.' (Rory Brennan Books Ireland)

'In this outstanding autobiography, Currie recalls describiing Paisley way back in 1966 as "a bigoted hangover from the seventeenth century". One of the best books on the north written by a major participant.' (John Cooney Evening Herald)

'The book successfully goes behind the scenes of an important time in our history. It is well worth adding to any collection of Troubles writing.' (Austin Hunter NewsLetter)

'This is a book for those who believe in the values of courage and steadfastness in politics, and in the value of democratic politics as a force for peaceful change. This matter-of-fact autobiography is not always an easy read. But then Austin Currie was never an easy man. Easiness is not what survival in the cauldrom of Northern politics requires. It demands toughness, cuteness and a refusal to lie down and diw, and he has all those qualities in spades.' (Andy Pollock Irish Times)

'If this were not autobiography, or if the author was not relatively less vain than some of his political comtemporaries, an appropriate alternative title might well be Profiles in Courage. This is a story of raw courage, physical, moral and political, shown by those Northern Ireland politicians over the past four decades who stoof for justice and human rights, an end to discrimination and oppression, fair play for Catholics and nationalists, for a commitment to democratic politics and an implacable opposition to violence and terrorism. This is a brave book, by a brave man, with a very supportive and courageous wife.' (Maurice Hayes Sunday Independent)

'Remarkably candid in his judgement of his former colleagues. ... Currie's autobiography is suffused with humour and anecdote, and informed with the sort of telling detail of time and place that only comes from a daily journal. Future historiena of the bad times will find it indispensible.' (Eric Waugh Belfast Telegraph)
