More About This Title History & Hope


In 1970, a group of people had what many commentators felt was a ludicrous dream, that politics in Northern Ireland "should not be dominated by division, but should be about co-operation, partnership and reconciliation." This dream was to become the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland. In the years since, this ambition to overcome tribal politics for a greater good has been preserved, through good times and bad. This book, the first full record of the development of the Alliance Party, charts that journey of hope and of history.
