Political Issues in Ireland Today by Neil Collins

The third edition of Political issues in Ireland today addresses the most important current topics in Irish politics. It fills a major gap in the academic literature on Irish politics, providing students with a comprehensive introduction to the issues dominating debates in both parts of Ireland. The recent emergence of emigration, environmental risk and technological changes on to the political agenda is reflected in this latest edition. It also revisits Ireland's economic performance, the peace process and the policy areas of health, housing and industrial relations. Readers will find this book a valuable resource for keeping up to date with the important policy debates in Ireland and for evaluating the impact of major social changes. -- .
