    An absolutely fascinating and very readable account of the stories of children of combatants in the n Ireland conflict in the words of the children - now adults - themselves. As the conclusion notes, their resilience is striking having been through what really were in no way normal times, and points to "the support of close friends and tight families, embeddedness in strong communities of resistance, sharing".

    Fascinating first-person accounts of the Troubles. Stories of trauma, resilience, but ultimately stories of childhood and pictures of family life told in vivid language.

    Can anyone recommend a good book about the contemporary history of the Irish-English conflict? Reading about Brexit makes me realize I don’t know much about that at all. ~ Dave Ritchie Best book I've read is Tim Pat Coogan's The IRA. Just finished this, which is excellent though not that accessible if you're not a giant nerd like me, but the author is a sociologist from Belfast whose research revolves around The Troubles and so I'd bet some of his other work is more so. ~ Sarah Jaffe Otherwise, th Can anyone recommend a good book about the contemporary history of the Irish-English conflict?
