  • discusses what each paramilitary group achieved throughviolence
  • analyses the continuing controversies surrounding the NorthernIrelands dirty war
  • outlines the extent of collusion between British securityforces and loyalist paramilitaries
  • explores how governments and political parties shaped the peaceprocess
  • scrutinizes prospects for the political development of unionismand nationalism within a devolved power sharing framework
  • examines whether the sectarian divide is strengthening orweakening
  • concludes by assessing whether Northern Ireland can movepermanently from violence and instability to become a normalpeaceful polity, in which the war is merely a historic relic

About the Author:

Jonathan Tonge is Professor of Politics at Salford University

Review:

"This is an insightful and scholarly book, which skilfully examinesrecent changes in the political dynamics of Northern Ireland. Theauthor provides a detailed analysis of the leading protagonists andthe key political issues which is thoroughly researched, incisiveand thought-provoking. For anyone interested in learning more aboutwhy the peace process has stuttered so badly in recent years, thisbook is a must read."

Feargal Cochrane, Lancaster University

"Jonathan Tonge's knowledge of Northern Ireland is prodigiousand his research is painstaking, sharp and detached. He has an eyefor the telling comment. This book displays all these qualities.Not only does it audit the status of the peace process but itoffers an agenda for moving politics forward. This is a must readfor politicians and policy-makers as well as students."

Paul Arthur, University of User
