Breaching Derry's Walls is the first book to examine the island-based society of Ireland from the point of view of its Northwest quadrant. In particular, Derry, a city long known as a center for culture, plays a central role in Professor Jon Van Til's research. Dividing his sections historically pertaining to societies and conflicts, Professor Van Til draws upon his personal experience as a Fulbright scholar to provide a fresh and original way of conceptualizing Ireland and all its facets. Appealing to students and conflict specialists, this book implements a new vantage point for understanding the Northern Ireland region.
