In the context of The Forum for a New Ireland (1984), the Anglo-Irish Agreement (1985), and the Downing Street Declaration (1993), Lennon addresses a number of unresolved questions which impede normalisation of society in Northern Ireland. He makes the key distinction between nationalists who support the IRA, and the majority of law-abiding Catholics, and questions whether these nationalists are capable of acceptiong democratic majority decisions. The role of the United States in the continuing conflict is examined, in the light of the author's advisory work with the New Ireland Forum and the Opsahl Commission. This is a serious and balanced study of the issues and interests involved in the Northern Ireland problem.
