The origins of the Northern Irish state are of great importance for the study of Irish history and Anglo-Irish relations, but this subject has never been tackled in great detail. In this diligent ad detailed account, Follis makes up for this oversight. He examines the turbulent early years of Northern Ireland, looking at how its administration was established and how it survived in the face of widespread communal violence, near bankruptcy, and political uncertainty, exacerbated by problematical relations with the governments in Westminster and Dublin. The highly controversial subject matter is subject to careful analysis, and if a particular standpoint emerges at its conclusion, an expression of it is long overdue. This is an honest and extremely lucid piece of research on a subject of vital importance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a timely and provocative contribution. ..His is a detailed and carefully researched study...Highly recommended... * Choice *
This is the most detailed study to date of the formation and ealy years of the Northern Ireland state. Its author has worked diligently through government archives in Belfas, London and Dublin * Political Studies *
well researched and contain impressive documentary evidence ... based on sound scholarly research of much relevant source material, and it correctly challenges some of the unsubstantial criticisms of the Northern Ireland government * Joost Augusteijn, University of Belfast, Irish Historical Studies *
There is too much fascinating information in his book to even hint at ... an alternative assessment of the origins of Northern Ireland is very much to be welcomed. * Alwyn Thomson, lion & lamb *
