Publisher: London : Profile Books, 2019Description: 184 pages : 1 map ; 23 cm.ISBN: 9781788161787.Subject(s): Borderlands -- Ireland -- History -- 20th century | Borderlands -- Northern Ireland -- History -- 20th century | Ireland -- Politics and government -- 1922- | Northern Ireland -- Politics and government -- 20th century | Ireland -- History -- Partition, 1921 | Ulster (Northern Ireland and Ireland) -- Politics and government -- 20th centuryDDC classification: 941.5082 Summary: "For the past two decades, you could cross the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic half a dozen times without noticing or, indeed, turning off the road you were travelling. It cuts through fields, winds back-and-forth across roads, and wends from Carlingford Lough to Lough Foyle. It is frictionless - a feat sealed by the Good Friday Agreement. Before that, watchtowers loomed over border communities, military checkpoints dotted the roads, and smugglers slipped between jurisdictions. This is a past that most are happy to have left behind but might it also be the future?" - Copac
