    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 158.00

    This book has two aims: to clarify the meaning of C.

The contrast between these two societies is a familiar one, but the book... more...

  • Peace Processesby John D. Brewer

    Wiley 2013; US$ 26.05

    Peace processes are mostly very fragile. This engagingly written book takes a bold new approach to the topic by beginning from the premise that sociology can identify those factors that help to stabilize them. The book draws a distinction between the political and social dimensions of peace processes, arguing that each is dependent on the other. Consideration... more...

  • Anti-Catholicism in Northern Irelandby John D. Brewer; Gareth I. Higgins

    Palgrave Macmillan 1998; US$ 72.00

    Anti-Catholicism forms part of the dynamics to Northern Ireland's conflict and is critical to the self-defining identity of certain Protestants. However, anti-Catholicism is as much a sociology process as a theological dispute. It was given a Scriptural underpinning in the history of Protestant-Catholic relations in Ireland, and wider British-Irish... more...
