My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this back in 1983 when the conflict was in the news on a daily basis. It was a couple of years after the hunger strikes and when Margaret Thatcher was the UK Prime Minister. I was engrossed by it and found it very compelling to read. Of course, it has been updated since and would probably cover the entire length of the conflict. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read about recent history.
