The Green Party struck its "Deal with the Devil" when they entered the coalition with Fianna Fail in 2007 and immediately started irritating members of the larger party by banning stag hunting and restricting planning permission for building permits.

This book tells the inside story of what happened to the Green Party whilst in a coalition government with Fianna Fail. During this time Ireland suffered an unprecedented crisis in the State's finances, set against the backdrop of a deeply flawed Irish banking system, the party's grassroots vote collapsed.

The following October, party members threatened to pull out over the controversial National Management Agency (NAMA). Senior figures were kept in the dark about the arrival of the IMF in 2010. The Greens demanded an early general election, but stayed in government in the hope of passing key Green legislation.
