Summary
"Norman Porter is one of the most respected writers on Northern Ireland politics. His book Rethinking Unionism: An Alternative Vision for Northern Ireland (Blackstaff Press, 1996) is widely credited with suggesting a shift in unionist thinking which facilitated the Good Friday Agreement." "Turning his attention towards post-Agreement politics, Porter argues in this important new book that 'reconciliation matters' and that, while there are genuine problems, they are 'not of such an order that they defy the powers of human wit, imagination and determination to resolve'. At its core, the book treats reconciliation as a moral ideal which 'makes demands on how we live and think as social, political and cultural beings'. Reconciliation is, Porter grants, a 'hard taskmaster', but 'one that has the potential of resolving outstanding problems in the North'."--BOOK JACKET
