This chapter focuses on the success of the MacBride campaign. The MacBride campaigners set for themselves the formidable task of confronting the UK and US establishments; challenging policies; and achieving social, economic and political change in Northern Ireland. The success of their campaign was not due to its strength, nor its justice, nor the determination of the personalities involved. It was the power of the mighty dollar, wielded by Goldin, Flynn and others, that forced the change. It was the threat of lost business that forced the UK government to act.
