Written by a leading group of scholars, this unique volume examines post-Agreement Northern Ireland. It shatters the myth that Northern Ireland is "a place apart"--its conflict the result of peculiarly local circumstances. Northern Ireland is compared with societies in four continents that are
also divided--including Canada, Israel/Palestine, South Africa, and Sri Lanka--showing that comparative analysis is essential for understanding the dynamics of Northern Ireland's conflict, ethnic conflict in general, and conflict management. In addition, the contributors offer a wealth of
suggestions on how to consolidate or change the landmark Agreement that Northern Ireland's political parties reached in 1998.
