I still can't agree on the fundamental conceptualisation of the conflict that pervades Ruane and Todd's work, and their ideas of how to thus deal with it. Despite being a bit too far into the let's all hold hands and just get alone kind of idea, with their emancipatory approach to 'solving' the conflict, this book and its ideas have been extremely useful to me over the past year.

A very tedious read covering the politics in Northern Ireland. If you are interested in learning about the Troubles, I suggest trying another book... one that won't put you to sleep.
