A new Ireland : politics, peace, and reconciliation by John Hume( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout twenty-five years of conflict in Northern Ireland, John Hume has been the constant beacon of reason. A New Ireland is John Hume's remarkable story of his personal struggle for civil rights, peace and prosperity for all the people of Ireland. Born in 1937 into a working class Catholic family in Derry, Hume presents vivid memoirs of his youth, family and Catholic Nationalist community. He goes on to explain his political philosophy and examine the historical positions of the parties to the conflict: British and Irish, Unionist and Nationalist. For the first time ever, Hume relates the inside story of his historic meetings with Gerry Adams which eventually led to the 1993 Joint Declaration by Britain and Ireland and the 1994 ceasefire by the IRA and Unionist paramilitaries. He concludes with his assessment of the prospects for a lasting peace in Ireland and his unique vision of an international Irish nation

John Hume: in his own words by Sean Farren( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Hume is regarded as the key architect of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement. This book collects extracts from Hume's speeches, articles and interviews, and adds a contextual narrative. The selected texts chronicle his entire career, covering his entry into public life in the early 1960s through the credit union, the Derry Housing Association and the civil rights movement, his first election to the Northern Ireland Parliament, the foundation of the SDLP, his influence over successive Irish governments, and the various initiatives aimed at ending the violence and achieving an acceptable agreement. This book provides a comprehensive overview of Hume's political thoughts, his comments on critical events and developments, and his proposals for resolving the Northern Irish conflict. Hume's commitment to human rights, and his implacable opposition to violence as a means of addressing conflict emerge from the texts, as does his transformative influence on the development of Irish and British attitudes and policies, as governments grappled with the problems arising from the troubled relationships within and between the two islands"--Publisher's website

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The boys of St. Columb's, ' Nobel Laureates Seamus Heaney and John Hume join other former pupils to reminisce about their schooldays. The British Education Act of 1947 provided free secondary education to Northern Irish children for the first time, opening the school gates to a new generation eager for change. That generation's desire for new horizons meant that the old order could no longer stand. This painful transformation would forge major national and international talents, leading to major achievements in the arts, politics, and diplomacy. This is the story of some of those boys, the school, the city, and their time."--Container
