An examination of the fraught dynamics of identity politics in and between Northern Ireland and the Irish Free State/ Republic of Ireland from 1921 to the present. This book provides a new understanding of the 'Troubles' and the peace process. Commemorations and the influence of history receive special attention, as does the European context.

Editorial Reviews

"It is refreshing to encounter a book that explains the way the modern histories of the two Irelands -north and south- have intertwined and formed a dizzyingly self-reinforcing feedback system: sometimes for the better, mostly for the worse. Professor Brian Walker is one of the few writers who can catch this interaction with clarity and a strong and fair sense of evidence. I recommend this book highly to anyone who cares about where Ireland has been - and where it is going."- Donald Harman Akenson, Douglas Professor of History, Queen's University, Canada
