There can be few European communities more soaked in their history than the Catholics of Ulster. Ulster has always been geographically a land somewhat apart from the rest of Ireland, and its harsh history has given both the Catholic and Protestant communities a unique stamp. Both communities' understanding of their past remains central to their identities, but the layers of myths, lies and half-truths which make up these understandings have had ruinous effects. In this long-anticipated book, Marianne Elliott has succeeded in at last creating a coherent, credible and absorbing history of the Ulster Catholics - from their early mediaeval origins to the devolution of 1999.'Elliott brings new and perceptive insights' -- Belfast Irish News'Elliott's book is a formidable achievement.balanced as well as deeply researched and forcefully written.' -- Daily Telegraph'In this fine book, Marianne Elliott, an Ulster Catholic who has lived in England for decades, has triumphantly succeeded in showing why her people are as they are.' -- Ruth Dudley Edwards, The Times'Marianne Elliott has written a scholarly, immensely well-documented work which, while controversial in many of its conclusions, adds immeasurably to our knowledge of a neglected community.' -- Belfast Irish News'The Catholics of Ulster is a rich and complex work that deserves to be read not only by all students of Irish history but also by anyone with an interest in the history of Catholicism and the relationship between religion and nationalism.' -- Daily Telegraph'This is an authoritative, fair-minded and compelling work. There have been some fine books published on Irish history over the past couple of years, but The Catholics of Ulster must surely be one of the most distinguished.' -- Jonathan Bardon, The Irish Times'[An] important, ground-breaking work' -- Belfast Irish News.
