In one generation, modern Ireland has experienced rapid political, economic, and social transformation. Every aspect of Irish life and public policy has changed. Ireland: Historical Echoes, Contemporary Politics charts and explains the facets of that change--including the nation's economic development strategy, the education revolution, Irish language policy, the path of Church-State relations, the impact of the media, the dynamic role of women, and constitutional and political development as well. The book also charts Ireland's place in Europe and the world through the Second Irish Renaissance in music, literature, and the arts.Finnegan and McCarron also discuss the explosion of bitter ethnic conflict in the North.
