This outstandingly successful work of reference is now brought up to date to mark the hoped-for end of the Northern Ireland Troubles. The book is a detailed account, in diary form, of the thirty-year development of civil and political unrest in Northern Ireland. It also contains a number of short essays that look back at the major events of the last thirty years, assessing their significance and setting them in context. Among these are: Bloody Sunday (1972), the collapse of the Power Sharing Executive (1974), the Republican hunger strikes (1981), the Anglo-Irish Agreement (1985), the first I.R.A. cease-fire (1994) and the historic Good Friday Agreement (1998).
