Making Sense of the Troubles: The Story of the Conflict in Northern Ireland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After a chapter of background on the period from 1921 to 1963, this text on the Troubles in Northern Ireland covers the ensuing period - the descent into violence, the hunger strikes, the Anglo-Irish accord and the bombers in England - to the contemporary, shaky peace process. Behind the deluge of information and opinion about the conflict, there is a straightforward and gripping story. This text aims to tell that story, it describes and explains a lethal but fascinating time in Northen Ireland's history, which brought not only death, injury and destruction, but enormous political and social change. It closes on an optimistic note, convinced that while peace - if it comes - will always be imperfect, a corner has now been decisively turned.

Book News Annotation:

Having previously collaborated on Lost Lives, which tells the stories of those who died as a result of the conflict in Northern Ireland, journalist McKittrick and political scholar McVea provide a broad-stroke account of the violence that rocked the region from the 1960s to the 1990s, with a brief historical background back to 1921.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Compellingly written and evenhanded in its judgements, this is by far the clearest account of what happened through the years in the Northern Ireland conflict, and why.

It covers the period from the late 1960s to the present shaky peace process. Behind the deluge of information and opinion about the conflict, there is a straightforward and gripping story, demanding to be told in accessible prose. This is that story.
