Joanne Mcevoy Provides an overview of the politics of Northern Ireland, including detailed coverage of the Good Friday Agreement and an evaluation of how its institutions operated. Opening with the historical context and discussion of the nature of the conflict, the standpoints of unionism, nationalism, loyalism, and republicanism are explored. The book concludes with coverage of political developments post-suspension, paying particular attention to the on-going debate regarding changes to the agreement and the prospects for power-sharing.
