Interpreting Northern Ireland (Paperback)
Since 1968 when the current troubles began in Northern Ireland, hundreds of books and thousands of articles have been published on the subject. This book provides a guide to the mass of research that has accumulated. Whyte first surveys the research on the nature and extent of the community divide and then discusses various ideological interpretations, including unionist, nationalist, and Marxist. He assesses the various solutions that have been proposed and critically examines what the research has achieved.
