At the beginning of World War I, the dominant strain within Irish nationalism sought devolved self-government within the United Kingdom. By the end of the war, nationalists pursued a free Irish Republic outside the British Empire. Thomas Hennessey looks at the extent to which the war led Ulster unionists to reassess their psychological relationship with the rest of the Ireland and with the United Kingdom, and the many consequences of this for Northern Ireland. He explains how and why the problems of Ulster have become intractable and deals with the juncture which irredeemably altered the problem beyond that which had gone on for centuries before.

Thomas Hennessey is a lecturer in history at the University of Canterbury. In books such as A History of Northern Ireland, 1920-1996 and Dividing Ireland: World War One and Partition, he examines the decades-old rift in Ireland in a scholarly manner.
