Margaret Thatcher, the Conservative Party and the Northern Ireland Conflict, 1975-1990, Stephen Kelly - electronic book

"From a 'no surrender' attitude to Republican hunger strikes to the Northern Ireland peace process, Kelly traces the evolutionary and sometimes contradictory nature of Thatcher's approach to Northern Ireland. In doing so, this nuanced study reflects afresh on the political relationship between Britain and Ireland in the late-20th century. Making use of previously neglected archival sources, this is a vital resource for those interested in Thatcherism, Anglo-Irish relations, and 20th-century British political history"--, Provided by publisher
