The Lie of the Land - Irish Identities


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

 From its sometimes confused sense of place, caught somewhere between Europe and America, Ireland has redefined itself in the 1990s. Often out of necessity (the Irish Church forced to confront paedophilia among its ranks, for example), occasionally through sheer will and bravado, Ireland has changed to such an extent that in 1996 it could boast a greater per-capita GDP than the UK and a real place in the global economy. (Maybe not quite so buoyant right now though...) But the legacy of John F. Kennedy's visit and the relentless wave of emigration it signified, as well as arguments over nationalism, sexual politics and the Church, remain, creating a diverse, energetic and socially engaged community.
