Boulder, CO: Roberts Rinehart, 1996. 472pp. Illus. Bibliograpy, Index. "Tim Pat Coogan offers a balanced and reflective assessment of the complex conflicts in contemporary Northern Ireland. An authoritative observer of the nationalist cause with strong political contacts on both sides of the border, Coogan sets the historical context for the resurgence of centuries-old tensions that led to the civil protest and pogroms of the late 1960s."
