Product description

Tim Pat Coogan covers the tortured history of Ireland from the beginning of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, through the long years of violence, up to the present attempts to find peace. His access to many of the principals gives this book a particular authority. Going beyond the slogans and headlines, Coogan provides a hard look at the deadly drama of a divided Ireland.

"-Evening Standard, "Melanie McDonagh ...The Troubles will be essential reading for any future scholar of Irish peace-making. "-Observer"
