The Troubles of Northern Ireland

The historical sense among the people of Northern Ireland is strong, but an approach to history does not yield political harmony. According to James Donnelly and Theo Hoppen, issues such as unemployment, immigration, and free trade, in addition to basic religious disparities, underscore historical and contemporary social unrest in Northern Ireland.

At the time of this interview, Donnelly was professor of history at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Hoppen, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1985-86), was professor of history at the University of Hull.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
