Published in 1956, Ulster and the Irish Republic is an examination of the “Controversy over what is called the ‘partition’ of Ireland”, written from the Unionist point of view.
William Arthur Carson offers a history of the conflict between Ulster and the Irish Republic, and speaks of Ulster’s determination to remain part of the United Kingdom, while ignoring the fact that many men and women in Ulster want nothing of the sort.
Focusing on the differences and disputes between Ulster and rest of Ireland, Carson’s book fails to provide any meaningful analysis of the different views within Northern Ireland itself.
