Ulster's last stand?; reconstructing Unionism after the peace process.


Ulster's last stand?; reconstructing Unionism after the peace process.

McAuley, James.

Irish Academic Press


226 pages




After nearly 30 years of political violence, says McAuley (political sociology and Irish studies, U. of Huddersfield), the 1998 signing of the Belfast Agreement, or the Good Friday Agreement, signaled the birth of a new political consonance. He examines the political positioning and reorganization of the Protestant unionist loyalist population in Northern Ireland throughout the conflict period, but most especially during the peace process and the near decade following until a new government was elected in May 2007. Among his perspectives are understanding contemporary unionism, the politics of new loyalism, transforming loyalism, and unionism and loyalism in a settled peace. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
