In 1982 Jonathan Bardon published his bestselling Belfast: An Illustrated History. Now, with historian co-author David Burnett, he has created a compact and up-to-date history of this significant Irish port. Covering over thirteen centuries since the first human settlement at the ford on the River Farset, this compact history includes vivid descriptions of the radical politics of the eighteenth century and the rapid growth in industry that made Belfast a world leader in shipbuilding, linen, and ropemaking. The tragedy of the recent Troubles and the nervousness and hope of the current search for peace end this highly readable and authoritative account.
