Traditional Unionist (Belfast, Northern Ireland) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ireland Since 1939 (Hardcover)
There are some gaps in this book. But I can only think of one, and to cover it fully would disproportionately increase the size of the book.

Anyone wishing to fully, and as far as possible impartially, asses the history of Ireland in the past 50 years must start here. This is by no means a pocket or quick guide to Irish history and politics, but it a detailed, fair, and unique study into a complex and varied subject. The impartial and properly contextualised treatment of Unionism, particularly during the Brooke years, is unique in terms of its detail and lack of lazy stereotypes and assumptions. Full use of the public and private deposits at the Public Records Office have added immeasurable value to this work.

Patterson's works on the IRA and areas of southern Irish politics are well known, as is his collaboration with Bew and Gibbon, however Ireland since 1939 stands out as an outstanding work that cannot be overlooked as a key study of Irish and Northern Irish politics.
