A Unionist's Reading List

I was recently asked to recommend reading material for a Canadian political student needing to get an “insight into Unionism”. It was a difficult request to deal with; firstly because whilst the person in question was restricting his definition of Union merely to Northern Ireland’s link with the rest of the UK, to do so I think misses the bigger picture presently unfolding in the rest of the nation. Secondly, there simply isn’t that much material which attempts to look at the wider subject in any kind of impartial never mind sympathetic manner.

The rough and ready list that I came up with is now posted here at Open Unionism.
