Contesting the state

Lessons from the Irish case

Maura Adshead, Peadar Kirby, and Michelle Millar

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first critical survey of the evolution, nature and role of the Irish state, which is widely recognised to have played a central role in Ireland's economic boom Offers an in-depth analysis of a state widely seen as a model of success in this globalised era and uses the case study of Ireland to draw out wider lessons for globalisation Brings together contributors from different disciplines to bridge the gap between distinct literatures and help to develop a rich, interdisciplinary approach to studying the state Offers an accessible text for students and lecturers in Irish Studies interested in moving beyond cultural and historical approaches into the social sciences Distinguished contributing scholars include Professor J. Lee, widely regarded as contemporary Ireland's leading historian and Dr Rory O'Donnell, director of the National Economic and Social Council and a key contributor to the policy-making process.
