(p.97) 5 Britain and Ireland: Towards a Post-nationalist Archipelago
Contextualizing Secession

Richard Kearney

Oxford University Press

Tracing the genesis and development of British and Irish nationalism, the author argues that both national identities emerged in a mimetic and symbiotic dialectic culminating in violent conflict. This was inevitable given the respective claims of both nations to 'one and indivisible' sovereignty over the same territory: Northern Ireland. The new post-nationalist scenario was outlined in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.
