Northern Ireland

by Feargal Cochrane

In this thoughtful and engaging book, Feargal Cochrane looks at Northern Irelandâ TMs â œTroublesâ ? from the late 1960s to the present day. He explains why, a decade and a half after the peace process ended in political agreement in 1998, sectarian attitudes and violence continue to plague Northern Ireland today. Former members of the IRA now sit alongside their unionist adversaries in the Northern Ireland Assembly, but the regionâ TMs attitudes have been slow to change and recent years have even seen an upsurge in violence on both sides. In this book, Cochrane, who grew up a Catholic in Belfast in the â TM70s and â TM80s, explores how divisions between Catholics and Protestants became so entrenched, and reviews the thirty years of political violence in Northern Irelandâ "which killed over 3,500 peopleâ "leading up to the peace agreement. The book asks whether the peace process has actually delivered for the citizens of Northern Ireland, and what more needs to be done to enhance the current reluctant peace.
