Since 1968 when the current troubles began in Northern Ireland, hundreds of books and thousands of articles have been published on the subject. This book provides a guide to the mass of research that has accumulated. Whyte first surveys the research on the nature and extent of the community divide and then discusses various ideological interpretations, including unionist, nationalist, and Marxist. He assesses the various solutions that have been proposed and critically examines what the research has achieved.

An interesting account of the 'Troubles' of Northern Ireland. This author takes into account the history, economy, and social aspects of the troubles and allows the reader access to all of the information. Truly a work instrumental to any students understanding of Northern Ireland. Things are not as simple as they appear to those people removed from the troubled land. In this account John Whyte attempts to demonstrate just how complicated and tragic the issue really is. Only through completely understanding the history of this land can we hope to find a solution that is just and lasting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
