When the President calls 8.95 5.00

Trevor Birney & Julian O'Neill

US President Bill Clinton's visit to Northern Ireland on 30 November, 1995 has been the high-point of the peace process. Never before, or since, have Protestant and Catholic united in a day of such euphoric celebration. That Clinton's peace mission faced potential catastrophe just seven hours before his arrival made its triumph all the more breathtaking. When the President calls is the inside account of the months of painstaking planning and diplomatic tension behind the Clinton spectacular. More than a story of a remarkable 24 hours in the life of Clinton and Northern Ireland, it chronicles the extraordinary involvement of a superpower in the quest of a peace settlement.

...a fascinating behind the scenes account of the tensions involved, revealing the story behind what was one of the biggest ever news stories in the province. Belfast Telegraph
