This hefty fifth edition of Elliott and Flackes's political encyclopedia of Northern Ireland is the first edition to be published in the United States. Given the encyclopedia's breadth, alphabetical headers would have helped, as many entries are multipage. A separate section called "Systems of Government" surveys governments from 1971 to the present. The challenge to any political history of Northern Ireland is currency, and Elliott and Flackes (both of the BBC; Flackes is now deceased) reach December 1998 with a lengthy entry on the Omagh bombing. They provide almost daily coverage of 22 years of "the Troubles," and every splinter group is identified and dissected.
