The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) is the most successful political party in Northern Ireland. Following a jaw-dropping deal with its republican enemy, Sinn Fein, in 2006, the DUP has secured the peace process in the region. What though, do members of the DUP think about having to share power with a party once linked to the IRA and described by their leader for decades, the Reverend Ian Paisley, as the 'enemies of Ulster'? And who are these DUP members? Are theyreligious bigots drawn from a narrow section of Protestantism, or moderate political pragmatists who have mellowed as their party has become one of government? Drawing upon unprecedented access, including a survey of the party membership and over one hundred interviews with party leaders andordinary members, this book analyses the transformation of a party once seen as the most religiously fundamentalist in Western Europe.I.
