A Pocket History of Northern Ireland
The book tells the history of Northern Ireland from the Third Home Rule Bill right through to Derry Girls. Covering all aspects of the beginnings of Northern Ireland as a separate state, to gerrymandering and World War II, and on to the emergence of the Troubles and finally peace, this book is a guide to all the dramatic events of the past 100 years. Leaders such as Terrence O’Neill, Gerry Fitt, Ian Paisley, Gerry Adams, David Trimble and John Hume are profiled, along with terrorist organisations and political parties. The cultural history of Northern Ireland is also celebrated, from Seamus Heaney to Derry Girls and Game of Thrones.
