Much has been written about ‘The Troubles’ but only in recent times has text regarding the peace process in the 1990s begun to emerge. Drawing together quotations from a wide range of sources including politicians, academics, clergy, political activists, journalists and other commentators this book not only reflects key moments, arguments and issues but also represents the slow yet momentous political developments in Northern Ireland during the 1990’s.

This book also reflects key political debate and offers legitimacy to the diversity of opinions held in Northern Ireland. Views are often expressed in an articulate and eloquent manner with a sense of purpose and meaning and given the logic, belief and strength of feeling that underpins them are not out of place with the various political sensitivities of the time.

This book examines many contentious areas including victims, paramilitaries and prisoners, policing, marching and decommissioning and as much as contributors make arguments for and against, so to the reader can draw their own conclusions.

The book will prove particularly useful to those who are involved in peace building or community relations and/or who wish to gain a clearer understanding of the peace process in 1990’s Northern Ireland. It will also help you to formulate arguments, challenge opinion and confront prejudice and intolerance by reflecting on the wide range of views contained within the book that are not only reflective of the mainly Nationalist and Unionist communities but all parties who had in interest in the Peace Process.
