   schema:description "This book examines the time period of 1968-2003 in broad historical perspective, including an exploration of the ideological roots of the conflict in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It covers the decisive episodes that marked the trajectory of the Troubles, from the Civil Rights Movement, Bloody Sunday, and the Sunningdale Agreement, to the hunger strikes, the paramilitary ceasefires, and the Good Friday Agreement. The book exposes the assumption that the conflict was a product of imperialism, and challenges the idea that the descent into violence was brought about by atavistic regression or ethnic solidarity. Its central argument is that the Northern Ireland debacle was a distinctly modern conflict, fought over rival aspirations to popular sovereignty. Accordingly, the book places opposing conceptions of democratic legitimacy at the center of the dispute. From this angle, it analyzes both Nationalism and Republicanism as well as Unionism and Loyalism, with the aim of providing a sustained investigation of the impact of political ideas on modern Ireland. Interest remains high in the history and context of the Troubles, and Richard Bourke, as a historian of ideas, is perfectly placed to analyze the conflict and its origins."@en ;
