This book traces the history of Ireland from the Catholic Emancipation of 1829 to the establishment of the Irish Free State and Northern Ireland in 1922. The book argues that partition was the only way of limiting civil war in a country where democracy was inextricably linked to sectarianism. The book also examines the role of the British government in effecting this transtition.
