Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-The roots of the conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Ireland form a web of complexity that makes it difficult for outsiders to comprehend. Wagner has done an admirable job of attempting to explain this conflict without oversimplifying the issues. In clear and nonjudgmental prose, she traces the history of this intractable dispute back to its beginnings in the 17th century. The greatest strength of the writing is in its vivid depiction of the personalities involved and the impact they have had on the war and the peace process. People such as Michael Collins, Bernadette Devlin, Gerry Adams, Ian Paisley, and Margaret Thatcher have all played a role in shaping the long-running, often-deadly rift between the British Government and the IRA, and they are all given coverage here. Strangely missing is any mention of the two Northern Irish women who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976, Betty Williams and Mairead Corrigan. One a Catholic and one a Protestant, they began a grassroots peace movement that caught the attention of the world. This account is up to date, ending with the IRA's pledge in October of 2001 to begin disarmament. No pat solutions are offered but questions are raised and much useful information provided. Reproductions and full-color photos appear throughout.
