9780199565719: Paisley: Religion and Politics in Northern Ireland

The career of the Revd Ian Paisley raises vital questions about the links between religion and politics in the modern world. Paisley is unique in having founded his own church and party and led both to success, so that he effectively has a veto over political developments in Northern Ireland. Steve Bruce draws on over 20 years of close acquaintance with Paisley's people to describe and explain Paisleyism. In this clearly written account, Bruce charts Paisley's movement from the maverick fringes to the centre of Ulster politics and discusses in detail the changes in his party that accompanied its rise. At the heart of this account are vital questions for modern societies. How can religion and politics mix? Do different religions produce different sorts of politics? What is clear is that Paisley's people are not jihadis intent on imposing their religion on the unGodly. For all that religion plays a vital part in Paisley's personal political drive and explains some of his success, he plays by the rules of liberal democracy.

Newly published in paperback with an afterword discussing the achievement of the devolved executive and Paisley's period as First Minister in the new Assembly.

About the Author:

Steve Bruce is Head of the School of Social Science, University of Aberdeen.

Review:

`This timely book...is invaluable in reaching an understanding of just what drives and motivates the religion and the politics of the man himself...Bruce's book provides the bedrock to understand what is happening now - and what will happen in the immediate future - among the religious and political Paisleyites in Ireland.' John Coulter, Tribune

`a learned, funny and absolutely riveting account of "the big man", as Paisley's friends and followers call him. It is the best account of The Troubles which I have ever read.' AN Wilson, Evening Standard Books of the Year

`very enlightening' Irish Times
