This book unravels the complicated origins and course of Northern Irish history in a straightforward, accessible text. It traces the roots of the social divide, and outlines the emergence of Nationalism and Unionism. It discusses the partition of Ireland in 1921, how Northern Ireland was governed, and its decline into instability and war. It deals with the Civil Rights movement, the twenty-five years of violence between Republicans and Loyalists and British forces, and the 1994 ceasefires.
