Overview

This concise history and analysis of the complex conflict that has plagued Northern Ireland for nearly 50 years traces the various attempts at peace and subsequent failures. From the start of serious unrest with the Divis Street riots of 1965 to the signing of the Good Friday agreement in 1998, each eruption of violence is examined and the place of the major political and paramilitary forces explained. In addition to providing a carefully selected time line, social and economic histories are chronicled, revealing the endemic divisions in housing and education as well as the woeful employment rates caused by the persistent military and paramilitary actions since the start of "the troubles."
