Dr Billy Leonard brings a wealth of personal and political experiences to bear on his subject of a united Ireland. His journey from unionism, including a period in the part-time Royal Ulster Constabulary Reserve, to republicanism, including his time as an elected representative, help make this a unique book. The author lifts the topic away from the mere aspirational call to outlining the political work that needs to be done. It is constantly punctuated with personal recollections and strong recommendations. Whatever your opinion on Irish unity this book makes a major contribution.
