"How did the British government and civil service shape the Northern Ireland peace process? What kinds of tensions and debates were being played out between the two governments and the various parties in Northern Ireland? Addressing texts, negotiations, dialogues, space, leverage, strategy, ambiguity, interpersonal relations and convergence, this is the first volume to examine how senior British officials and civil servants worked to bring about power-sharing in Northern Ireland. With a unique format featuring self-authored inside accounts and interview testimonies, it examines a spectrum of areas and issues which came into play during the dialogues and negotiations which led to political agreement in Northern Ireland. A compelling insight into what actually happened inside the negotiating room and how the British tried to shape the course of negotiations"--
