'Confident societies tend not to obsess about identity. But Northern Ireland does. The identity which is most debated at present is that of northern Protestants. Contested Identities is a timely and thought-provoking series of essays exploring the various
manifestations of that identity. As such it will immeasurably assist our understanding of a community which often feels misunderstood and marginalised.'
Professor Marianne Elliott, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool, UK
'The Ulster Protestant identity is complex and often misunderstood. This work offers an insight into many aspects of a culture which is diverse and unpredictable. Much will surprise. An important book, which will enlighten many who have a narrow view of the 'Ulster Prod'.'
Ken Reid, Political Editor, Ulster Television, UK
'This volume provides much-needed depth, context, dimensions and empathy.'
