Eric Kaufmann is a sparky academic, who has been working on several related studies of contemporary Orangism over the last few years. This Prospect article takes a rather dark view of the changes inside Orangism. He is particularly pessimistic about the internal shift from restraint to the kind of wilder action that led to major confrontations with the police in the summer.
