About this title


John Hume - civil rights activist, founding member of the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), and leading politician in Northern Ireland during the long period of the Troubles - gained worldwide recognition and respect for his principled opposition to the use of violence as a means of resolving the deep divisions between the people of Northern Ireland, between those who favor Irish unity and those who favor maintaining the union with Britain. His constant message was the need to heal sundered relationships between the people of Ireland, north and south, and between the people of Ireland and Britain. This book of essays assesses John Hume's role throughout the Troubles as he campaigned in Ireland, Europe, and the US to influence politicians and opinion makers in the cause of justice and peace. These essays discuss: the political background to his entry into public life in 1960s Derry as a champion of the credit union movement * the civil rights campaign * the Sunningdale Agreement * the failed efforts to establish a power-sharing executive * the trauma of terrorism * the hunger strikes * his role in Europe and the US * the Anglo-Irish Agreement * the Hume-Adams dialogue * the Good Friday Agreement. [Subject: Irish Studies, Politics, History]
