I began reading this book in early November, and it was an interesting perspective on Irish history of the late 19th and early 20th century. I don’t know enough about Uris’ historicism, nor the details of Ulster at this time to really comment on that, but there wasn’t anything too glaringly wrong in what I did know already.
The book follows a number of individuals of a wide range of backgrounds in terms of education, class, profession, religion, desired nationality and more. (These last two aren’t plain dualities, either.) It’s fairly good at doing so, and is provocative. Worth reading for those interested in the topics.
