1 CONROY, JOHN Belfast diary : war as a way of life.
Boston Beacon Press 1987 0807002046 / 9780807002049 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
218 pages, map endpapers, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: For many months over the course of three years, John Conroy, a Chicago journalist, lived on the front lines of the Northern Irish conflict. Staying in a boarding house in West Belfast, Conroy learned from his neighbors how to adjust to the paranoia, claustrophobia, and everyday violence of life in the Catholic ghetto. He discovered firsthand what it is like to be stopped and searched at gunpoint, to be caught in crossfire, to be held captive by armed men. In time, he came to understand how a kind of brutal order was maintained by the IRA and by the state. Belfast Diary is a sensitive account of the private motivations and personal struggles behind the headlines, a book for both the novice and the veteran observer of Irish affairs.

3 Golway, Terry For the Cause of Liberty: a Thousand Years of Irelands Heroes
New York Simon & Schuster 2000 0684855569 / 9780684855561 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
397 pages, illustrations, cloth, DJ, very good. From Library Journal: Golway, a columnist for the New York Observer and a prolific writer of newspaper articles and books (e. G. , The Irish in America) , here offers a helpful popular history of the struggle between the English and Irish. Balanced, readable, and informative, the narrative moves from Henry II's 1171 invasion to the peace talks of 1998 between the various warring parties of Northern Ireland. Most popular histories of the Irish struggle tend to focus on a particular period, group, or individual, so this broad survey--which still has respectable depth--is a welcome addition to the literature. One pleasing aspect of Golway's treatment is the attention given to the many women who played a part in Irish nationalist struggles over the years. ; 397 pages
