The Historic Compromise?

(p.217) Chapter 6 The Historic Compromise?
The New Politics of Sinn Féin

The chapter focuses on the partnership of Republicans and the British state that shifted towards a historic compromise. Various issues in the context of the Unionist perspective and other critics are also examined and assessed against the developing negotiations in the peace process between Republicans and the British state. The chapter also talks about the changes in the structures of thought between the clashing movements and how they paved the way for reconciliation. The dialogues and discourses that the Republicans used to achieve its goals of reunification are also discussed, juxtaposed with the differences in the opposing forces' cultural and sociopolitical identities.
