Summary Scorpions in a Bottle describes the interlocking elements which make up the 'Northern Ireland Problem'. Political and constitutional differences, inequalities, violence and its legacy, and religion and ethnicity are closely examined. New perspectives are offered on the conflict, the people and the history of Northern Ireland. Discussion is set firmly within the context of conflict analysis, and policy options are suggested for Northern Ireland and pluralist societies. Scorpions in a Bottle will be of value to scholars of Northern Ireland, comparative ethnic studies and conflict management
