Summary

Summary

After reviewing the political conflict of the last two decades in Northern Ireland, this book concludes that there are repeated failures of understanding between the internal political actors in the North and their supposed external allies. The Anglo-Irish agreement and the Brooke talks are recent illustrations of the British government's desire to minimalize its presence in the North, and the gap between the Irish goverment's rhetorical commitment to nationalism and the reality of contemporary politics in the South.
