Product description


'Confident societies tend not to obsess about identity. But Northern Ireland does. The identity which is most debated at present is that of northern Protestants. Contested Identities is a timely and thought-provoking series of essays exploring the various
manifestations of that identity. As such it will immeasurably assist our understanding of a community which often feels misunderstood and marginalised.'
– Professor Marianne Elliott, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool, UK 
'The Ulster Protestant identity is complex and often misunderstood. This work offers an insight into many aspects of a culture which is diverse and unpredictable. Much will surprise. An important book, which will enlighten many who have a narrow view of the 'Ulster Prod'.'
– Ken Reid, Political Editor, Ulster Television, UK

About the Author

Dr Paul Burgess is from Belfast's Shankill Road and holds degrees from the Universities of Ulster, Cork and Oxford, UK. The main emphasis of his academic research includes education, cultural identity and community work and he has published widely in these and other areas. As a songwriter / performer with his band, Ruefrex, his compositions are critically acclaimed for their political commentary on the Northern Irish conflict, with particular reference to the Protestant/Unionist/Loyalist communities. He is currently a Senior Lecturer at University College Cork, Ireland.

Dr Gareth Mulvenna is currently a Visiting Research Fellow at Queen's University Belfast. He has written on Belfast's Protestant working class for Irish Studies Review and is currently writing a book about Ulster's loyalist 'Tartan' gangs of the early 1970s entitled From Young Citizens to Volunteers (Liverpool, 2016).
