For the Schools History Project.
This book provides a thematic approach to the study of the conflict between communities in Northern Ireland, and is particularly suitable for a Modern World Study for Schools History Project (SHP) syllabuses for History at GCSE level.
The Story Outline is a concise narrative acting as an overview of the main themes and chronology from the Celtic period to the present day.
Issues and Enquiries give deeper investigation of problems, including:
- the role of factors such as religion, social conditions and economics in causing the conflict,
- key turning points in the history of Ireland in the 20th century,
- consideration of wider issues, such as the British Empire, racism and the Irish-American connection.
All topics have a source-based, active-learning approach.
