In 1997 Feargal Cochrane provided the first comprehensive account of unionist politics from the Anglo-Irish Agreement through to the forum elections and multiparty talks of July 1996. In this new edition of Unionist Politics and the Politics of Unionism, an extra chapter takes the story forward from 1997 until the UUP leadership challenge of March 2000. The analysis concentrates on the trials and tribulations of unionist politics throughout this period, concentrating on the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) of 10 April 1998 and its faltering implementation. The chapter ends with some observations concerning the state of unionist politics today and the extent to which they have moved on since the first edition of the book was published.
