Product Description

Product Description

The Falls Curfew of 3-5 July 1970 is considered by many to be the turning point in Catholic-Army relations throughout Northern Ireland and Belfast in particular, and ultimately led to Catholic alienation from the state. The curfew was intended to dispel the violence, it lasted 36 hours during which 4 people were killed, at least 75 were wounded (including 15 soldiers) and 337 people were arrested.

About the Author

Andrew Walsh grew up in the shadow of the Troubles and was acutely aware of the impact both Catholics and Protestants had on Irish society. Walsh moved back to England in 1991, and completed a history degree. He has dedicated the last four years researching and interviewing those involved in the Falls curfew and has had unprecedented access to the families and to the political parties involved, including Sinn Fein.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling reading. 5 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always had a passing interest in Irish history and can't quite put my finger on just what attracted me to this book as it is recent history but I am very pleased I did purchase it.
The story of the Falls Curfew is little reported and probably the least known of the conflict yet it proved to be a major turning point in the conflict.
It is written in an unbiased viewpoint, something the author should be applauded for on such an emotive subject.
This book engaged my curiosity in the conflict to such an extent I travelled to Belfast specifically to see the site of the subject and to put it all into context, something no other book has prompted me to do.
If you only ever read one book on modern Irish history, make it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belfast History 25 Aug 2013
Excellent condition. Fast delivery
and helpful to research in this field. Important reading for understanding of the period but only one man's collection
in an area fraught with problems

5.0 out of 5 stars From Hope to Hatred 5 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A very detailed and in depth book, a very sensitive subject, it is an eye opening account and an insight into the lives of ordinary people in extraordinary times. Deeply shocking but also very moving, this book takes you through difficult and troubled times for the people of Northern Ireland., with reverberations still felt today through all levels of society and Government. Highly recommended, a marvellous and enthralling read.
