Dr. Aaron Edwards and Cillian McGrattan, experts in political science, here provide an important guide to the Northern Ireland Conflict. The audiobook is especially for beginners, and no prior knowledge of the conflict is assumed by the authors. In fact, they break down the feud's complexities into understandable components - the political, religious, social, and cultural. Richard Aspel narrates, his voice charmingly energetic. With these seven hours of information - including quotes and interviews from important political leaders - listeners should feel confident that this audio will bring them up to date on Irish politics.
The Northern Ireland conflict is one of the most protracted, bitter, and complex campaigns of terrorism the Western world has ever seen. Since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, the region has come a long way, finally achieving a hard-won peace. Yet hostility between Unionists and Nationalists is as strong as ever, communities remain divided, and sectarian violence is rife. Edwards and McGrattan’s balanced introduction skilfully dissects the “Troubles” to offer fresh perspectives on their complicated history and legacy. Containing interviews with influential figures from both communities, this landmark work will help anyone seeking a better understanding of the ongoing dispute over Northern Ireland.
