The aim of the Modern World Study is to examine a contemporary issue in its historical perspective. This work provides essential elements required for a Modern World Study on Northern Ireland. It includes a survey of aspects of Irish history from Celtic times to the Welfare State of the 1950s. It also gives an analysis of key events since the development of the Civil Rights movement in the later 1960s and the onset of "The Troubles".
