"[This book's] main conclusions deserve to be widely disseminated and discussed."

"Based on 29 in-depth interviews with loyalists (part of the Protestant/unionist community) and republicans (part of the Catholic/nationalist community), this is the first major book to analyse the religious beliefs and practices of those who
engaged in violence, including their perceptions of how religion influenced them." - Marginalia
