9780241962657: Making Sense of the Troubles

By far the clearest account of what happened in the Northern Ireland conflict - and why. The troubles rolled grimly on for almost thirty years from the late '60s until the onset of the current shaky peace process. In that time they never strayed far off the news schedules of the world's media. But behind the wall of information and opinion there was a straightforward and gripping story, demanding to be told in an accessible way. Award-winning Ireland correspondent for the Independent David McKittrick and historian David McVea at last tell that story - clearly, concisely and above all fairly.

About the Author:

David McKittrick is the Ireland correspondent for the Independent. He received the Orwell Prize for Journalism in April 2000. In 1999 he was named Correspondent of the Year by the BBC's What the Papers Say. He was also co-author of the bestselling LOST LIVES, published by Mainstream in 1999. David McVea was head of the politics department at a Belfast grammar school for many years and has researched and written widely on the troubles.

Review:

Buried in the text of most histories you can detect the views of the author. Making Sense of the Troubles, the first attempt to tell the whole story of the past 30 years in Northern Ireland, is an exception. (Anne McHardy Observer)

One of the great merits of David McKittrick and David McVea's book lies in the authors' ability to pinpoint the causes of trouble while avoiding oversimplification.... A valuable resume of causes and effects. (Patricia Craig Independent)

If you want a frank, accurate and authoritative account you cannot do much better.... There could be no better guide through the intricacies of the Peace Process. This book...is likely to be the definitive account.... An important book.... It should be on every bookshelf. (Irish Independent)

Comprehensive, considered and compassionate. (Paul Arthur The Irish Times)

A masterly account. (Barry White Belfast Telegraph)

Extraordinarily well-balanced, sane, comprehensive, and rich in sober understatement. (Cal McCrystal Glasgow Herald)

This book tells a sorry tale, and it tells it with a powerful clarity.... It took steady nerves to undertake such a book. (Susan McKay Sunday Tribune)

Descrizione libro Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. COMPLETELY REVISED AND UPDATED EDITION Making Sense of the Troubles is David McKittrick and David McVea s classic history of the Troubles, now completely revised and updated. First published ten years ago, Making Sense of the Troubles is widely regarded as the most comprehensive, considered and compassionate (Irish Times) history of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Written by a distinguished journalist and a teacher of history in Northern Ireland, it surveys the roots of the problems from 1921 onwards, the descent into violence in the late 60s, and the three terrible decades that followed. McKittrick and McVea have now fully updated the book to take into account the momentous events of the last ten years, including the disbanding of the IRA, Ian Paisley s deal with the Republicans and the historic power-sharing government in Belfast. An updated reissue of a collaborative study published 12 years ago to rave reviews as a frank, accurate and authoritative narrative of events which should be required reading for anyone hoping to understand what had been going on in the North Irish Independent I would strongly advocate that it be made compulsory reading for everyone in Northern Ireland because for the first time it is our history, all of it warts and all, presented in a clear and understandable way Irish News Extraordinarily well-balanced, sane, comprehensive and rich in sober understatement Glasgow Herald Compellingly written and very even-handed. By far the clearest account of what happened in the Northern Ireland conflict and more importantly why it happened Irish News David McKittrick has reported on the Northern Ireland troubles since the 1970s. After working for the Irish Times and BBC he has been Ireland correspondent of the London Independent since 1985.
