I’m reading VOICES and am interested in the history of the PUP, UVF and the involvement of the labour movement. Of particular interest is the UULA, Carsons involvement, the shipyards, Henderson and the Protestant working class . I’m puzzled and dismayed at the chronic failure of the PUP at the voting booth.

Can you recommend any nonpartisan books on these topics?
You should begin by reading a history of the Northern Ireland Labour Party and the reasons for its demise at the start of The Troubles in the early 1970s.
