Unionism and Orangeism in Northern Ireland Since 1945: The Decline of the Loyal Family

Overview

This is the first book based on unprecedented access to the archives of both the Ulster Unionist Party and the Orange Order. The history depicted in this book is of two organizations which even at the apogee of their powers in the 1950's were riven with major stresses and conflicts. It shows just how precarious the position of the Unionist and Orange elites was as they struggled to deal with conflicting demands.
