Abstract

[Extract] With the view of learning from the past to help secure a brighter future for the north, this book explores the deep cultural drivers behind these south-to-north conflicts and suggests that a cultural divide between the north and the south needs to be reconciled if the nation as a whole is to benefit from this new phase of northern development. I first explore where the continuation of these historical conflicts could take us without a clear forward or guiding agenda. To do this, I tell personal stories from my long and diverse experiences in the north. To seek some conclusions, the book draws on these stories to help shape a cohesive agenda for the future.
