This introduction presents an overview of key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book first traces the reaction to events after October 1968 until the autumn of 1972, examining the impact of August 1969, the aftermath of internment and the response to Bloody Sunday. It then looks at violence south of the border, particularly bombings and shootings and their human cost. The book also examines state security, censorship and the popular protests associated with these issues. It looks at changing attitudes to refugees and northern nationalists more generally. The book further describes the impact of the conflict on southern Protestants, and outlines the controversies concerning the IRA and their activities. Finally, it examines a variety of social and cultural responses to the conflict, including attitudes to Britain and northern Unionists.
