Description
This book about Belfast in the middle of the nineteenth century looks at how and why Ireland's most prosperous and industrialised town began to tear itself apart. Through a series of steadily escalating riots, working-class Protestants and Catholics forged a tradition of violence that profoundly shaped their own identities and that of the city itself, setting the stage for the bitter conflicts of the next century.
