  Gerry Adams - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A 1973 ceasefire between the IRA and the British was widely seen as a disaster by republicans and as a result Adams (allegedly) rose to become the most senior figure in the IRA's Northern Command on the basis of his absolute rejection of anything but military action.
Although 'provisional' republicanism was founded on its oppostion to the communist-inspired "broad front" politics of the Cathal Goulding's Official IRA, in prison Adams came to recognise the power of political as well as military action.
Republicans had long claimed that the only legitimate government of Ireland was provided by the IRA's Army Council, which had nominally been vested with these powers by the remaining republican deputies from the last All-Ireland Dáil on the eve of the Second World War.
