Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Northern Ireland has been the focus of media attention since the resurgence of violence in the wake of the civil rights movements of the 1960s. However, media constructions of an apparently incomprehensible cycle of violence and atrocity have produced an image of a society separated from the wider world. This book breaks down this narrow view and provides a detailed account of Northern Irish society and politics in the last 30 years. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c.
