Northern Ireland after the troubles

A society in transition

Colin Coulter and Michael Murray

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The only up-to-date text of its kind, providing a wider perspective on contemporary Northern Irish society than most books on the market Considers a breadth of issues rather than just the political, and so offers a comprehensive and engaging account of social and political life in the region Sets out to challenge the official reading that the troubles are now behind us and that the future of Northern Ireland will almost inevitable be one of prosperity and progress
  • A critical response to the choreographed optimism that defines both official discourse and media commentary on Northern Ireland Brings together a diverse range of contributors both in terms of political perspective and disciplinary background, and so aims to create an inner dialogue rather then a cosy consensus
