This is a critical overview of the various sources of social and political identity in Northern Ireland. The book examines the key variables of sociology - status, class and gender and, in this case, ethno-religion - and explains why ethno-religious sentiment has become the principle source of political identity.

A range of themes are covered: the role and status of women; the representations of the conflict and peace process in the media; sport; and the importance of popular music.
