    Understanding Ulster, Prof Anthony Alcock, Paperback 178 Pages, Price #7.99
    + P&P</b>
 
 
 
      For over twenty-five years the news from or about Northern Ireland has
      been uniformly bad: terrorism, sectarian murder, discrimination, economic
      shortage and social deprivation. Violence has claimed over 3,000 deaths
      andover 30,000 injured.
 
 
 
      Why?
 
 
 
      What makes the Northern Ireland conflict unique is that whereas else-
      where the world governments seek to retain control of areas where their
      supporters are in an ethnic or political minority, in Northern Ireland
      the British government would like to be rid of an area where its
      supporters are in the majority. This book argues that since 1919
      successive British governments have shown little commitment to the Union,
      deliberately pursuing a policy of Irish unification by consent. This has
      involved turning a blind eye to Dublin's claims to Northern Ireland,
      ignoring and cold- shouldering Unionists, and accepting Southern
      involvement in Northern affairs. But if this has alienated and
      demoralised the Unionist community it has not shaken the determination to
      remain with Britain rather than loin the Irish Republic, while the
      emphasis on consent has merely served to frustrate the unitication hopes
      of Irish Nationalists.
 
 
 
      The result is that both the Unionist and the Nationalist communities in
      Northern Ireland see themselves as victims, with nothing to say to each
      other, and the political vacuum is filled by paramilitaries.
 
 
 
      Anthony Alcock is Professor in the Faculty of Humanities at the
      University of Ulster, teaching European History and Politics and
      specialising in the protection of culturally divided communities and the
      process of European integration.

    The Ulster Cover-Up, John Morrison, Paperback, 164 pages, Price #6.95 +
    P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      A history graduate of two universities and a prizeman in economics, John
      Morrison has engaged in several kinds of journalism and was for many
      years a regular columnist in a local Sunday newspaper. He has been
      personally acquainted with many leading figures of Northern Ireland
      political, social and religious life. The access he has had to events and
      to what lies behind them has revealed to him many areas of Ulster affairs
      which have been quite untruthfiilly represented to the British public and
      to the world. Urged on by friends and former readers of his column, he
      has turned aside from other projects to write this book, recording what
      has actually happened in Ulster in recent years and the reason why Ulster
      events have been the subject of so much disinformation and cover-up.

    Woodrow Wilson: A Presbyterian President, Ronnie Hanna Paperback 85 pages.
    Price #3.95 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      Woodrow Wilson was the grandson of James Wilson from Strabane and the son
      of a Presbyterian minister; he was also one of America's greatest
      Presidents. His legacy to his country and to the world is impressive -
      after implement- ing a programme of much needed progressive social
      reforms in the United States, he went on to assume leadership of the
      allied cause in the Great War and in the process drew up the blue-print
      for what we know today as the United Nations. Wilson was truely the first
      world leader of modern times, but at heart he remained what he was born,
      an Ulster Presbyterian.

    Never Call Retreat, Ronnie Hanna Paperback, 148 pages, Price #5.95 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      Ronnie Hanna does not seek to hid Grant's faults, particularly as chief
      executive, but he does ample justice to the energy and organisational
      ability which brought an end to America's rnost disastrous war. He has
      compressed the facts of a comlpex and diversified life story into a lucid
      and masterly biography." Rory Fitzpatrid

    Life-Line to Freedom, Derrick Gibson-Harries Paperback, 118 pages, Price
    #4.50 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      This book recalls the traumatic years of 1939/45 when Ulster served not
      only as a vital military base but as a provider of men and material for
      the cause of freedom. We get a glimpse of what life was like here for the
      farmers and factory workers and, drawing on many pictures not previously
      seen, we bring back the time when Ulster was practically one of the
      states of the U.S.A.
 
 
 
 
 
      For those who lived through the war years or for those for whom it is an
      event in history, this book will be one to treasure.

    William Johnston of Ballykillbeg, Aiken McClelland, Paperback, 135 Pages,
    Price #5.50 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      William Johnston's main contribution to the development of Ulster
      Loyalism was his securing, between 1867 and 1872, the right of Orangemen
      to parade freely in their own land, and by so doing to demonstrate to the
      nationalist community with whom they shared that land, to westminister,
      Dublin and the world that they were a potent political and cultural force
      in Ulster.
 
 
 
 
 
      The historian and the general reader alike will now have the opportunity
      to study and peruse Aiken McClelland's biography of this enigmatic Orange
      stalwart who, through frequently ill and rarely out of debt, prepared the
      ground for the emergence of that more comprehensive and dynamic form of
      Ulster Unionism which James Craig and Sir Edward Carson were to lead.

    Still UnderSiege, Derek Miller, Paperback 77 pages. Price #3.95 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      Still Under Siege tells the heroic story of the events of 1688/89 and
      brings that story up to the present day. In this important book Derek
      Miller captures the drama and significance of those past battles and
      relates them to our own times.
 
 
 
 
 
      Derek Miller, a native of Londonderry, is a school teacher by profession.
      He is well known in the North West, especially through his association
      with the Apprentice Boys of Derry.

    The Ulster Covenant: A Pictorial History of the 1912 Home Rule Crisis.
    Edited by Gordon Lucy, Paperback 99 pages. Price #5.95 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      28th September, 1912 was the day which saw the signing of Ulster's Solemn
      League and Covenant by which the people of Ulster showed their
      solidarity, determination and self-discipline when opposing Asquith's
      Home Rule Bill. The Covenant proclaimed that Ulstermen would surrender
      neither their "civil and religious freedom" nor their cherished position
      of equal citizenship in the United Kingdom" and would combine to resist
      the imposition of an unjust Dublin rule. In the cities, towns and
      villages of Ulster, the signing of the Covenant was a truly impressive
      demonstration of Ulster Unionist discipline. Martin Ross - of Irish R.M.
      fame - was greatly impressed by "the unadorned and individual action of
      those who had left their fields, and taken their lives and liberties in
      their hands laying them forth in the open sunshine as the measure of
      their resolve." In Ulster, the Covenant was signed by 218,206 men; and
      228,991 women signed a parallel declaration associating themselves with
      the men ''in their uncompromising opposition to the Home Rule Bill now
      before Parliament." A further 19,162 men and 5,055 women oi Ulster birth
      signed at various locations outside the Province. By the end ot the day,
      the people of Ulster had demonstrated their resolve to the British
      Parliament and to the world.

    Lord Macaulay on Londonderry, Aughram, Enniskillen and the Boyne Edited by
    Gordon Lucy, Paperback 92 pages. Price #4.00 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      "A people which takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote
      ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remem- bered with
      pride by remote descendants" - Lord Macaulay.
 
 
 
 
 
      This publication celebrates not only the Tercentenary of the 'Glorious
      Revolution' but righily highlights the all-important local contribution
      to this milestone in the history of the British people and constitution.
 
 
 
 
 
      The Glorious Revolution found its greatest historian in Lord Macaulay.
      His History of England is a vivid exposition of a great people's struggle
      for civil and religious liberty, for representative government and,
      ultimately, as the story was to unfold, for democ- racy itself.
 
 
 
 
 
      With linking passages Macaulay's supreme command of vivid and dynamic
      prose is employed to good effect to recount the epic siege of
      Londonderry, the oft-forgotten exploits of the Enniskillen men, the
      valiant deeds performed at the Boyne in the presence if the 'glorious
      pious and immortal memory' and, finally, the most bloody engage- ment in
      Irish history on the plain of Aughrim.

    Covenant and Challenge, Rev. Brett Ingram Paperback 145 pages. Price #4.95
    + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      This book gathers together some of the papers and miscellaneous articles
      of one of Ulster's best known and most loved historians, Rev. Brett
      Ingram.
 
 
 
 
 
      Rev. Ingram was a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin and served In a
      number of clerical posts, the last being Rector of Ballygawley. He was a
      prominent member of The Ulster Society. He wrote a number of books,
      including The Bible Catalogue and The Ulster Tide. In 1970 he was
      responsible for producing the Armavigil Pageant. in Armagh, commemorating
      the disestablishment of The Church of Ireland in 1870.
 
 
 
 
 
      Rev. Ingram was a great Ulsterman and used his expert knowledge to
      promote the interests of the land he loved. He was a great communicator
      and a man of striking personality. He was also blessed with an original
      sense of humour.
 
 
 
 
 
      In these pages the reader is given a flavour of Brett Ingram's
      captivating style. Although his death has robbed our country of one of
      it's most eloquent champions, his writings will outlast the ravages of
      time.

    The Idea of the Union: Statements and Critiques in Support of the Union of
    Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Edited by Prof Wilson, Paperback, Price
    #4.00 + P&P.
 
 
 
 
 
      The continued maintenance of the Union is the best, most rational and
      intelligent option available to all the people of Northern Ireland,
      irrespective of class and creed. The Union is a good cause monumentally
      ill-served by those whom we elect to promote the pro-Union case.
      Nationalists, by way of contrast, have succeeded in marketing and
      packaging a poor intellectually shallow and shabby cause very
      effectively.
 
 
 
 
 
      The publication of The Idea of the Union marks the beginning of a more
      professional and effective presentation of the pro-Union case. As such,
      it is the book for which we have all been waiting. No argument which can
      and ought to be deployed in defence of the Union is omitted. This
      publication is a veritable handbook of intelligent Unionism
 
 
 
 
 
      The volume is edited by Professor John Wilson Foster and includes
      contributions from Dr Arthur Aughey, Dr Dennis Kennedy, Robert McCartney
      QC, Patrick Roche and Dr Graham Walker among others
