Ireland under austerity

Neoliberal crisis, neoliberal solutions

Edited by Colin Coulter and Angela Nagle

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides the most sustained critique to date of the austerity regime introduced in Ireland after the global economic crash
  • Reveals how the forces of neoliberalism have employed the crisis they caused to advance their own, very narrow interests
  • Narrates and explains the reactionary course that Ireland has followed since the ignominious demise of the Celtic Tiger
  • Offers a critical and engaging account of how the convulsions in the world economy have played out in a country once held up as the 'poster child' of capitalist globalisation
