4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and Readable, 8 April 2010
This review is from: Making Sense of the Troubles: A History of the Northern Ireland Conflict (Paperback)
I'm shortly going to marry a man from Derry, and having previously studied a lot of Irish history at University, I wanted to get more details on the Northern conflict and try to understand the environment when we visit his relatives in Derry and Belfast.

I found this book a very readable and engaging starting point, a fairly even account (although I suppose using the word "Derry" shows my own perspective) from which I have gone to to more detailed studies of different time periods and groupings.

I'm inclined to agree with Alan Leonard below, but for a general reader this is a good starting point.
