For generations, men and women of Ulster have proclaimed a will to fight, to remain separate from the rest of the Irish nation, and for many years they retained their position as social and economic superiors to their Roman Catholic compatriots. Every summer they parade their banners and flags, and march the streets of the province to the sound of flute and Lambeg drum, playing Loyal songs to loyal crowds, proclaiming their allegiance to the United Kingdom. This book in an attempt to get under the skin of the Protestant people of Ulster and explain a community which many in Britain regard as impenetrable and intractable. It tells their story with humour and with insights born of the author's upbringing in the Loyalist stronghold of North Belfast. The book contains interviews with known terrorists - childhood friends of the author - obtained inside the Maze and Maghaberry prisons.

"Geoffrey Beattie...has written a penetrating, often amusing if ultimately depressing account of the unknown people who have to live their lives amid the Troubles." - Daily Post, 10/9/92
"cleverly evocative....a good book....tells of the awfulness of how things are and will probably remain: and should be and needs to be read." - New Statesman and Society, 24/7/92
"humour and incisive observation....he wins some extraordinary confidences from ordinary Ulster Prods. The tales of the undertaker, the surgeon at the Royal and the paramilitary are funny, telling and vivid. He skilfully evokes the discomfort of reassimilation with the tenacity of a ruthlessly self-mocking people." - City Limits, 17/9/92
