Despite power-sharing initiatives, the Downing Street Declaration and subsequent IRA ceasefire, the majority of Northern Ireland's Protestants still have retained many attitudes in common with those of settlers in other parts of the world. Surveying the literature on imperialism and colonialism, and relating it to the situation in Northern Ireland, the author of this book provides a history of the triangular relationship existing between Protestant settlers, Catholic natives and the British government in the 20th century.
