How the Troubles Came to Northern Ireland [PDF]

by Peter Rose
In this new book about Northern Ireland, historian Peter Rose argues that if Harold Wilson's government in the late sixties had pursued a different policy, the province might have been spared the troubles. Wilson had promised the Catholics that they would be granted their civil rights. However, new evidence suggests that Westminster was deliberately gagged to prevent MPs demanding that the Stormont administration end discrimination in the province. Had the government acted on intelligence of growing Catholic unrest, it could have prevented the rise of the Provisional IRA without provoking an unmanageable Protestant backlash. This book draws upon recently released official documents and interviews with many key politicians and civil servants of the period to examine the failure of British policy to prevent the troubles.
