Editorial Reviews

Review

'... a valuable documentary record with the added benefit of an intelligent and authoritative guiding commentary.' -- The Scotsman

From the Back Cover

Like them or loathe them, they cannot be ignored. The political wall murals of the North of Ireland are an integral part of loyalist and republican communities. In its murals each group displays its hopes and fears, struggles and aspirations. Sometimes the murals are long-lived, more often their existence is fleeting. This unique collection of photographs captures a large selection of the murals in their original colour and grandeur. It provides a revealing glimpse into the ideologies of the communities which produce this lively political art.

Format: Paperback
I came upon this book in a search for a scholarly tome on the political murals of Northern Ireland. I was disappointed at first. While this is an exceptional collection of Loyalist and Nationalist mural paintings, I wanted more. There is a bit of background and some minor information on the historical perspective where these paintings are found, but I wanted more. Imagine my chagrin when I realized that this is one of the few books that exists on this subject. Standing alone, this book is not enough to garner an appreciation of the art form. But, in conjunction with some knowledge of the cultures on both sides of the border in Ireland, it is priceless.
