This outstandingly successful work of reference is now brought up to date to mark the hoped-for end of the Northern Ireland Troubles. The book is a detailed account, in diary form, of the thirty-year development of civil and political unrest in Northern Ireland. It also contains a number of short essays that look back at the major events of the last thirty years, assessing their significance and setting them in context. Among these are: Bloody Sunday (1972), the collapse of the Power Sharing Executive (1974), the Republican hunger strikes (1981), the Anglo-Irish Agreement (1985), the first I.R.A. cease-fire (1994) and the historic Good Friday Agreement (1998). This chronology is the essential guide to the politics and tragic events of the last thirty years in Northern Ireland. It also includes comprehensive coverage of the Peace Process.
