'We are the people' is a popular loyalist slogan in Northern Ireland -- a clear and unequivocal statement of loyalty, identity and devotion to and from Ireland's Protestants. The contributors to this collection, many of whom are members of Northern Ireland's Protestant community, examine the meaning behind this legend of unity and unwavering devotion. This book critiques the many issues and concerns which face a heterogeneous community: lifestyle, politics and cultural affiliations. In their broad analysis, the authors explore 'new' Unionism, gender issues, Protestant fundamentalism, working-class identity, and socio-cultural change.
