History In The Making
By J.P. Bruce
The title History In The Making reflects the extraordinary times in which we now live, as we enter the third decade of the 21st century. We are at a significant point in global history, at least as ground-breaking as the Reformation or the discovery of America.
Of course the importance of these historical milestones became apparent only with the passage of time. It is virtually impossible to view a drama unfolding before our eyes with anything like the same perspective or detachment.
Nevertheless that is my own instinctive response to what is going on today in Ireland and around the world. In fact the word ‘extraordinary’ seems wholly inadequate to describe it.
In History In The Making I address a fundamental question: how and why did we get here?
