Irish governance in crisis

Niamh Hardiman

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The Irish experience is highly topical
  • Everyone wants to know why things went so badly wrong so quickly
  • 'Governance' is often used loosely or vaguely
  • This book gives real bite and content to it, analysing the dynamics of state action in a theoretically interesting way
  • Genuinely interdisciplinary, yet working to a shared theoretical approach Not time-bound: it delves into the deeper causes of political, economic and social malaise that ran through the good times as well as the economic downturn
  • Will have a long shelf-life
  • This is a book about the state and public policy that is conceptually and analytically well integrated and makes a coherent and consistent argument, with fascinating policy case studies
