Over the course of three decades in the late twentieth century, Northern Ireland was embroiled in the Troubles, a conflict characterised by the violent and bitter struggle between nationalists and unionists. Many books in recent years have attempted to make sense of the Troubles. Primarily political and nationalistic, it also had a sectarian dimension. Undeniably it was fuelled by historical events, and yet most only look so far back as the 1916 uprising. In Ireland's Troubles, Robert Stedall argues that we need to take a longer historical view to truly understand the complex factors at play in Ireland's history that ultimately led to the Troubles. Comprehensive in its approach, it ranges from Plantagenet intervention among the warring Gaelic chieftains, to Cromwell's restoration of British rule following the English Civil War and William Pitt's resignation over the Irish Catholic's Emancipation question. Inextricably linked with the history of Britain, Stedall guides the reader through Ireland's turbulent but rich history. To understand the causes behind the twentieth-century conflict, which continues to resonate today, we must look to the long arc of history in order to truly understand the historical roots of a nation's conflict. AUTHOR: Throughout his adult life Robert Stedall has been fascinated by genealogy. He is the curator of the popular www.maryqueenofscots.net and author of The Challenge to the Crown and The Survival of the Crown, a ground-breaking two-volume history of Mary Queen of Scots and her son, James VI of Scotland. Following Mary Queen of Scots' Downfall, this will be his second book for Pen and Sword. 25 b/w images
