The Northern Ireland Conflict : A Beginner's Guide, Paperback

The Northern Ireland Conflict : A Beginner's Guide Paperback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series


The Northern Ireland conflict was one of the most bloody, protracted, and bitter campaigns of terrorist violence in modern history.

Rooted in the partition of Ireland in 1921, over 50,000 people were killed or seriously injured because of the hostilities between Catholic nationalists and Protestant unionists.

Despite the landmark Good Friday Agreement in 1998, violent incidents are still rife and new paramilitary groups are becoming ever more emboldened.

This landmark introduction uses the latest archival material to chart the history of "The Troubles" and to examine the possible factors behind the political compromise of Sinn Fein and the DUP.

Exploring the legacy of sectarian violence and inconsistent British intervention, the authors assert that, unfortunately, Northern Ireland is perhaps as fiercely segregated as ever.
