Michael D. Higgins' vision as part of his Presidential election campaign and now following through to his tenure as President of Ireland, is 'of [an] inclusive citizenship in a creative society, as we build a real Republic that makes us proud to be Irish in the world'. Renewing the Republicis an expansion of that vision as Michael D. lays out, through a series of essays and speeches, the ideals and philosophies by which this is possible. This collection of essays include Michael D.'s reasons for running for the Irish presidency; his academic essays on a variety of subjects, including the peasantry in Ireland and public representation; his thoughts on recent social and political changes and the current economic crisis. His speech at the Tom Johnson Summer School, highlighting his commitment to the arts in Ireland, and his last speech to the Dáil on 25th January 2011 also feature. This rich and varied compilation explores six themes: citizenship and the republic; culture, identity and reputation; human rights; language; globalisation, emigration and exile; and the public space.
