No Dope Here? Anti-Drugs Vigilantism in Northern Ireland

John Lindsay

Since the 1990s, the accusation most commonly levelled against the victims of ‘punishment’ attacks and murders has been one of involvement in the trade in illegal drugs. This brutal paramilitary ‘justice’ is one of the least researched aspects of the Northern Irish conflict. This book looks at drug use in Northern Ireland, and at paramilitary attempts both to profit from it, and to ‘police’ it through violence.
