Newsinger, J (2016) ''The truth, the whole truth...': some British political and military memoirs of the Troubles.' In: Dawson, G, Hopkins, S and Dover, J, eds. The Northern Ireland Troubles in Britain: impacts, engagements, legacies and memories. Manchester University Press, Manchester. ISBN 9780719096327

Item Type: Book Chapter or Section
Additional Information:

This ground-breaking book provides the first comprehensive investigation of the history and memory of the Northern Ireland Troubles in Britain. It examines the impacts of the conflict upon individual lives, political and social relationships, communities and culture in Britain, and explores how the people of Britain (including its Irish communities) have responded to, and engaged with the conflict, in the context of contested political narratives produced by the State and its opponents. Setting an agenda for further research and public debate, the book demonstrates that 'unfinished business' from the conflicted past persists unaddressed in Britain, and advocates the importance of acknowledging legacies, understanding histories and engaging with memories in the context of peace-building and reconciliation.
