Description: For almost three decades lsquo;the troublesrsquo; in Northern Ireland raged, claiming over 3,600 lives, with civilians accounting for almost half the fatalities. In this book, Jonathan Tonge examines the reasons for that conflict; the motivations of the groups involved and explores the prospects for a post-conflict Northern Ireland. The book: * assesses the motivations and campaigns of the IRA, UVF and UDA and other armed groups * discusses what each paramilitary group achieved through violence * analyses the continuing controversies surrounding the Northern Ireland's lsquo;dirty warrsquo; * outlines the extent of collusion between British security forces and loyalist paramilitaries * explores how governments and political parties shaped the peace process * scrutinizes prospects for the political development of unionism and nationalism within a devolved power sharing framework * examines whether the sectarian divide is strengthening or weakening * concludes by assessing whether Northern Ireland can move permanently from violence and instability to become a normal peaceful polity, in which the lsquo;warrsquo; is merely a historic relic Written by an acknowledged expert in the field, Northern Ireland combines incisive analysis, original research and a lucid style to provide an important assessment of what has been described as an 800 year old problem.
