Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This landmark synthesis of political science and historical institutionalism is a detailed study of antagonistic ethnic majoritarianism. Northern Ireland was coercively created through a contested partition in 1920. Subsequently Great Britain compelled Sinn Féin's leaders to rescind the declaration of an Irish Republic, remain within the British Empire, and grant the Belfast Parliament the right to secede. If it did so, a commission would consider modifying the new border. The outcome, however, was the formation of two insecure regimes, North and South, both of which experienced civil war, while the boundary commission was subverted. In the North a control system organized the new majority behind a dominant party that won all elections to the Belfast parliament until its abolition in 1972. The Ulster Unionist Party successfully disorganized Northern nationalists and Catholics. Bolstered by the 'Specials,' a militia created from the Ulster Volunteer Force, this system displayed a pathological version of the Westminster model of democracy, which may reproduce one-party dominance, and enforce national, ethnic, religious, and cultural discrimination. How the Unionist elite improvised this control regime, and why it collapsed under the impact of a civil rights movement in the 1960s, take center-stage in this second volume of A Treatise on Northern Ireland. The North's trajectory is paired and compared with the Irish Free State's incremental decolonization and restoration of a Republic. Irish state-building, however, took place at the expense of the limited prospect of persuading Ulster Protestants that Irish reunification was in their interests, or consistent with their identities. Northern Ireland was placed under British direct rule in 1972 while counter-insurgency practices applied elsewhere in its diminishing empire were deployed from 1969 with disastrous consequences. On January 1 1973, however, the UK and Ireland joined the then European Economic Community. Many hoped that would help end conflict in and over Northern Ireland. Such hopes were premature. Northern Ireland appeared locked in a stalemate of political violence punctuated by failed political initiatives.

This book was released on 2019-04-11 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Good Friday Agreement deserved the attention the world gave it, even if it was not always accurately understood. After its ratification in two referendums, for the first time in history political institutions throughout the island of Ireland rested upon the freely given assent of majorities of all the peoples on the island. It marked, it was hoped, the full political decolonization of Ireland. Whether Ireland would reunify, or whether Northern Ireland remain in union with Great Britain now rested on the will of the people of Ireland, North and South respectively: a complex mode of power-sharing addressed the self-determination dispute. The concluding volume of Brendan O'Leary's A Treatise on Northern Ireland explains the making of this settlement, and the many failed initiatives that preceded it under British direct rule. Long-term structural and institutional changes and short-term political maneuvers are given their due in this lively but comprehensive assessment. The Anglo-Irish Agreement is identified as the political tipping point, itself partially the outcome of the hunger strikes of 1980-81 that had prevented the criminalization of republicanism. Until 2016 the prudent judgment seemed to be that the Good Friday Agreement had broadly worked, eventually enabling Sinn Fein and the DUP to share power, with intermittent attention from the sovereign governments. Cultural Catholics appeared content if not in love with the Union with Great Britain. But the decision to hold a referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union has collaterally damaged and destabilized the Good Friday Agreement. That, in turn, has shaped the UK's tortured exit negotiations with the European Union. In appraising these recent events and assessing possible futures, readers will find O'Leary's distinctive angle of vision clear, sharp, unsentimental, and unsparing of reputations, in keeping with the mastery of the historical panoramas displayed throughout this treatise.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This brilliantly innovative synthesis of narrative and analysis illuminates how British colonialism shaped the formation and political cultures of what became Northern Ireland and the Irish Free State. A Treatise on Northern Ireland, Volume I provides a somber and compelling comparative audit of the scale of recent conflict in Northern Ireland and explains its historical origins. Contrasting colonial and sectarianized accounts of modern Irish history, Brendan O'Leary shows that a judicious meld of these perspectives provides a properly political account of direct and indirect rule, and of administrative and settler colonialism. The British state incorporated Ulster and Ireland into a deeply unequal Union after four re-conquests over two centuries had successively defeated the Ulster Gaels, the Catholic Confederates, the Jacobites, and the United Irishmen—and their respective European allies. Founded as a union of Protestants in Great Britain and Ireland, rather than of the British and the Irish nations, the colonial and sectarian Union was infamously punctured in the catastrophe of the Great Famine. The subsequent mobilization of Irish nationalists and Ulster unionists, and two republican insurrections amid the cataclysm and aftermath of World War I, brought the now partly democratized Union to an unexpected end, aside from a shrunken rump of British authority, baptized as Northern Ireland. Home rule would be granted to those who had claimed not to want it, after having been refused to those who had ardently sought it. The failure of possible federal reconstructions of the Union and the fateful partition of the island are explained, and systematically compared with other British colonial partitions. Northern Ireland was invented, in accordance with British interests, to resolve the 'hereditary animosities' between the descendants of Irish natives and British settlers in Ireland. In the long run, the invention proved unfit for purpose. Indispensable for explaining contemporary institutions and mentalities, this volume clears the path for the intelligent reader determined to understand contemporary Northern Ireland.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This new handbook provides a comprehensive and multidisciplinary overview of the theoretical and empirical aspects of state recognition in international politics. Although the recognition of states plays a central role in shaping global politics, it remains an under-researched and widely dispersed subject. Coherently and innovatively structured, the handbook brings together a group of international scholars who examine the most important theoretical and comparative perspectives on state recognition, including debates about pathways to secession and self-determination, the broad range of actors and strategies that shape the recognition of states and a significant number of contemporary case studies. The handbook is organised into four key sections: Theoretical and normative perspectives Pathways to independent statehood Actors, forms and the process of state recognition Case studies of contemporary state recognition This handbook will be of great interest to students of foreign policy, international relations, international law, comparative politics and area studies.

Book excerpt: "The book shows with stark clarity the extent to which Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland tend to live, to study, to work and to play apart. But it also shows that many parents want their children to go to shared schools, despite some church opposition, and that opinion polls indicate a higher level of willingness to compromise than is shown by elected political leaders. Should the British and Irish governments commit themselves to encouraging greater contact between the communities and seek to build a settlement on the middle ground? Or should they reluctantly accept a policy of communal separation and provide structures that allow Catholics and Protestants to govern themselves with minimal need for contact and co-operation?"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Book excerpt: FRONT OF COVER: Final: 5.11.98 NORTHERN IRELAND SINCE 1945 Second Edition SABINE WICHERT [Postwar World logo] SPINE: [Postwar World logo] NORTHERN IRELAND SINCE 1945 Second Edition WICHERT [colophon] OUTSIDE TRIM: Probable price: Probable publication: BACK OF COVER: ATo those who understand, no explanation is necessary. To those who will not understand, no explanation is possible.A The different attitudes that can be read into this celebrated graffito from the Falls Road in 1980s Belfast - arrogance, belligerence, alienation, intransigence and despair amongst them - have all contributed to the isolation of Northern Ireland in the modern world. Explanation and understanding, however, are the stock in trade of the historian, and it was to to provide the first and assist the second that Sabine Wichert published this well-known study in 1991. It rapidly established itself - as Terence Ranger predicted at the time in Irish Studies Review - as Aa standard text in contemporary history and politics coursesA. (For other reviews of the First Edition, see inside the front cover.) There are many reasons for its success: it is a work of great authority, formidably well grounded in the scholarship, rather than the prejudices, of the subject; Sabine WichertAs approach is distinctively that of a historian, rather than a political scientist or a journalist; she has a special understanding of the economic factors underlying the troubled provinceAs recent history; and, particularly, she herself - a German academic who has lived and worked in Northern Ireland for almost 30 years now - is uniquely well placed, asboth outsider and insider, to write with impartiality, insight and compassion about her adopted home. Much has happened to Northern Ireland since the book was published, and this Second Edition will be widely welcomed. The existing text has been reconsidered in the light of fresh perspectives; and many new economic and social tables have been included, along with a thoroughgoing overhaul of the extensive bibliography. Above all, the coverage has been fully updated to incorporate the major events of recent years, particularly the developments from the Anglo-Irish Agreement through the evolving Peace Process to the elections to Northern IrelandAs new Assembly. For this is a critical phase in the province: for the first time in its recent history a real possibility of stabilisation and more peaceful and democratic forms of government can be detected, and Sabine Wichert examines the contribution of all sides (including the Irish, British and US governments) to this changing climate. Yet tensions remain, and readers of this important Second Edition will await, with mingled hope and apprehension, the arrival of its eventual successor to clarify whether these apparently brightening horizons do indeed mark a turning point, or were only another false dawn. SABINE WICHERT is Senior Lecturer at the QueenAs University of Belfast, where she has taught since 1971.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The decommissioning of the Provisional IRA in 2005 suggests that Northern Ireland may finally be ready to turn from the deadly paramilitary clashes of the twentieth century to the thorny problems of a normalized political process. As both former head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service and Victim’s Commissioner, Sir Kenneth Bloomfield is in a unique position to evaluate the wisdom and long-term effects of the past fifty years of Northern Irish politics and policy. Bloomfield probes a number of crucial questions about the United Kingdom’s management of Irish affairs. Three decades of fighting have had grave consequences for Northern Ireland—what were the costs? Was violence inevitable? Bloomfield delineates the unwise decisions and abrogated responsibilities that led to the civil crisis of the Troubles while emphasizing the United Kingdom’s overriding duty to ensure peace. Peppered with incisive—and critical—portraits of the major political players, including Tony Blair and John Hume, A Tragedy of Errors gives us an unflinching insider’s view of Northern Irish politics and helps us understand the divisions that still dominate the region.
