Defining Events

Power, Resistance and Identity in Twenty-First-Century Ireland

edited by Fiona Dukelow and Rosie Meade

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Extremely timely as Irish society engages in a period of self-analysis and questioning in the aftermath of the Celtic Tiger
  • Helps readers analyse the forces at work (sometimes below the radar) during the boom period and beyond. It is very interdisciplinary in its approach bringing together critical perspectives from Archaeology, Law, Sociology, Equality Studies, Gender Studies, Geography and Social Policy
  • No other text has adopted the focus on 'defining events'
  • The core themes of power, resistance and identity emerge strongly across the text
  • It engages with contemporary social theory in a very accessible and grounded way
