Inhaltsangabe: This is the first book which is based on unprecedented access to the archives of both the Party and the Order. The history depicted in this book is of two organisations which, even at the apogee of their powers in the 1950s, were riven with major stresses and conflicts. It shows just how precarious the position of the Unionist and Orange elites was as they struggled to deal with conflicting demands: of working class Protestants for British standards of welfare and wages, of industrialists who opposed the 'socialistic' government at Stormont, of rank and file Orangemen who denounced the Government for restrictions on their right to march and of Border Unionists who opposed new factories that might employ 'disloyalists' i.e. Catholics. It reveals the complex role played by the leadership of the Orange Order in both opposing change and at the same time stemming the rise of Paisleyism and Protestant paramilitarism. It reveals the key role played by the UUP leader James Molyneaux and his Orange allies in stabilising the party's position and the subsequent dissolution of the alliance under David Trimble's leadership with his support for the Belfast Agreement.
Rezension: Kaufmann and Patterson's book on the Orange Order and its relationship to unionism are thus particularly welcome. They marry Henry Patterson's shrewd historical and contemporary judgements to Eric Kaufmann's forensic political science. --Jon Tonge, University of Liverpool, Political Studies Review
