I must declare an interest. Jonathan Bardon was my history teacher during my 5th form at school. I did not fully appreciate the depth of his expertise then but it's evident in this scholarly work. Perhaps the most comprehensive work on the subject available. Above all it steers a balanced and fair path through a mine field of tribal and emotional versions of this beautiful but blighted lands history.
