Twenty years on from her critically acclaimed book, 'Northern Protestants: An Unsettled People', Susan McKay talks again to the Protestant community in Northern Ireland. Based on brand-new interviews, and told with McKay’s trademark passion and conviction, this is essential reading.
Contains almost 100 interviews with politicians, former paramilitaries, victims and survivors, business people, religious leaders, community workers, young people, writers, and others. Tackles controversial issues, such as Brexit, paramilitary violence, the border, the legacy of the Troubles, same-sex marriage and abortion, RHI, and the possibility of a United Ireland. Explores social justice issues and campaigns, particularly the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights. Interviewees include: Eileen Weir, Dee Stitt, Dawn Purvis, Chrissie Quinn, Clare Sugden, Toni Ogle, Kyle Black, Sammy Wilson and others.
Ties in to topical debates around identity in the context of Brexit and the centenary of the foundation of the NI state. This new title will be accompanied by a new edition of 'Northern Protestants: An Unsettled People' which has already sold over 10,000 copies.
