Book Description

June 2002 People at Odds
As the world inches closer and closer to becoming a truly global society, it becomes all the more important that each and every citizen understand the historical underpinnings of the world's most infamous regional disputes. This series explains the roots of such disputes by examining the history of the regions involved, and by presenting the major issues involved from each party's perspective. Each book encourages students to put themselves in the shoes of both parties, and probing questions challenge students to propose real-life solutions for settling these divisive situations. Examines the religious and political ideologies that kept these two groups at odds for so long.

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.
