Publisher Comments:

‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland first broke out in 1969 and led to more than 3,500 deaths over the 30 years that followed. It proved to be the most intractable conflict in Europe since the Second World War. The 1994 IRA ceasefire, the peace process that followed and the eventual emergence of a power-sharing government constituted a remarkable transformation, but fierce debate remains over the recent history of Northern Ireland and its future.

Northern Ireland Since 1969 provides an introduction to the main events surrounding ‘the Troubles’, but also critically reviews the debates over the conflict and challenges some of the most influential explanations, examining events in their proper historical context.

 Key topics covered in the book include:

·        the role of the civil rights movement in the origin of ‘the Troubles’

·        the British government’s handling of the crisis in the early 1970s

·        the failure of power sharing in 1974

·        the Good Friday Agreement 1998 and its implementation

·        the triumph of the DUP and Sinn Féin

·        the future of Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland Since 1969 offers an accessible and comprehensive account of the history, key players and key moments of the conflict, making it an essential introductory text for students encountering the topic for the first time.

Paul Dixon is a Reader in Politics and International Studies at Kingston University. He is the author of Northern Ireland: The Politics of War and Peace (2nd edition, 2008).

Eamonn O’Kane is Senior Lecturer in Politics and War Studies at the University of Wolverhampton.  He is the author of Britain , Ireland and Northern Ireland Since 1980 (2007, paperback 2010).

Synopsis:

The conflict in Northern Ireland since 1969 has cost over 3,600 lives and about 100,000 people in Northern Ireland live in a household where someone has been injured in a troubles-related incident. This has been a key issue in British and Irish politics and the recent peace process in Northern Ireland and the current ‘War on Terrorism’ has stimulated international involvement and a desire to ‘learn the lessons’ of ‘the troubles’.

Although Northern Ireland has a population of just 1.5 million people it is one of the most researched territories of the world. There is considerable controversy over the interpretation of the history of Northern Ireland, not least since 1969. This new addition to the Seminar Studies in History  Series provides a comprehensive introduction to the difficult topic, reviewing different perspectives on the recent history of the conflict in Northern Ireland while at the same time providing an authoritative overview.

Each book in the Seminar Studies in History series provides a concise and reliable introduction to complex events and debates. Written by acknowledged experts and supported by extracts from historical Documents, a Chronology, Glossary, Who’s Who of key figures and Guide to Further Reading, Seminar Studies in History are the essential guides to understanding a topic.
