Church, State and Social Science in Ireland

Knowledge Institutions and the Rebalancing of Power, 1937-73

Peter Murray and Maria Feeny

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides the most detailed examination of the dynamics of the relationship between the Catholic Church and the Irish state since the second edition of John Whyte's classic account in 1980
  • Draws extensive new evidence from recently opened church and state archives to explore its subject in new and enlightening ways
  • Pinpoints key ways in which the institutional and intellectual bases of the Irish Catholic Church's great power have been eroded since the middle of the twentieth century
  • Highlights how interaction between external (particularly US) influences and internal factors was crucial to the changing of Irish ideas, institutions and policies between Marshall Aid and EEC entry
