Gerry Fitt and the SDLP

'In a Minority of One'

Sarah Campbell

Published by Manchester University Press

  • It is the first academic study of the role of Gerry Fitt in the politics of the SDLP (a viewpoint that has been overlooked in favour of a 'Hume-centric' approach)
  • It is a new history of the SDLP that draws on recently released government documents and private party papers
  • It presents an important addition to the revisionist histories that are questioning dominant and received wisdoms about the Northern Ireland conflict
  • It is the only work that explores the debate between nationalism and socialism in the first decade of the SDLP
  • The book contributes to debates on northern nationalism, ethnic conflict and conflict resolution
