Book review: This Troubled Land

This Troubled Land: Voices from Northern Ireland on the Front Lines of Peace (978-0345446701), by Patrick Rucker

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=widgetsamazon-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0345446704&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrNot an uplifting story. Rucker’s investigations are all true and interesting in their own right, but leaves you feeling in despair through the end. May have benefited with more accounts of the difficulties of cross-community work as well as the willingness by many in Northern Ireland to live in their own segregated worlds. (2/5 stars)
