Finally a good Unionist perspective on the Troubles

Written by Lord (John) Laird the book is a part biography which details the argument of the Unionist people of Northern Ireland within the framework of a remarkable life.

Written in a hugely readable style this absorbing book covers topics such as corruption in the Irish Republic, the history of the Unionist movement, IRA bombings and their effects on normal people as well as explaining the role that the Scotch-Irish have had through the history of USA as well as Europe.

I throughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in the history of Ireland or of the Scotch Irish. Available here.
