paperback ISBN 13: 9780099465713 | ISBN 10: 009946571x
Tim Pat Coogan's classic and controversial study, now covering the collapse of the IRA ceasefire.
'A very fine, provocative and intelligent book. The Troubles will be the standard work on the period until events overtake its contents.'
'The Troubles... contains as much information as any mortal might reasonably require for an understanding of 25 years of violence and one year of non-violence.'
'I have never read a more lucid indictment of the cruelties and smouldering hatreds of the Orange state ... He touches on every issue of significance and enlivens a horrific story with wit ... will be essential reading for any future scholar of Irish peace-making.'
