The End of Irish History?

Reflections on the Celtic Tiger

Colin Coulter and Steve Coleman

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Ireland appears to be in the process of a remarkable social change, a process which has dramatically reversed a hitherto seemingly unstoppable economic decline
  • This exciting new book systematically scrutinises the interpretations and prescriptions that inform the 'Celtic Tiger'
  • Takes the standpoint that a more critical approach to the course of development being followed by the Republic is urgently required
  • Sets out to expose the fallacies that drive the fashionable rhetoric of Tigerhood
  • An esteemed list of contributors deal with issues such as immigration, the role of women, globalisation, and changing economic and social conditions
