For nearly thirty years, the Maze Prison, ten miles outside Belfast, played a unique role in Northern Ireland's Troubles. With text by Louise Purbrick, Senior Lecturer in History and Design at Brighton University, and a timeline history of the prison and its prisoners as they relate to the history of the Troubles, this book of photographs documents the physical structure of the Maze Prison and gives the viewer some experience of the psychological impact of being inside the Maze. This book records and preserves a unique physical structure that has played an important role in our recent history.
