The Orange Order Summary

The Orange Order by Mervyn Jess

Born out of bloodshed, sustained by sectarianism and shrouded in secrecy, the Orange Order is one of the most abiding and controversial religion-based organisations in Europe, if not the world. A Catholic cannot join: its doors are open only to those who profess Protestantism.

BBC journalist Mervyn Jess, who has written extensively on Orange issues, strips away the mystery and myths of the Order and traces its origins and defining moments spanning three turbulent centuries. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in finding out what the Orange is all about.

The Orange Order Reviews

A highly illuminating and optimistic book -- The Sunday Tribune * The Sunday Tribune *
A thought provoking book that should be enjoyed by anyone who likes having their preconceptions challenged. -- The Irish Mail on Sunday * Irish Mail on Sunday *
Reflects an impressive understanding of the nature and culture of the institution . . . the great strengths of the book are its attractive readability and its wealth of interview quotation, from Orangemen and opponents alike. In letting these voices be heard, Jess has produced a fresh and vivid account -- The Irish Times * The Irish Times *
