SUITABLE FOR: Business or Political Science students at third level Also students of Sociology and Economics at third level Postgraduates and scholars with an interest in contemporary Ireland Anyone with an interest in Irish business and society 'Succeeds in drawing an excellent, multi-dimensional perspective on Ireland from some of our most perceptive academic commentators as we seek to address the role of business in our society in the 21st Century. It comprehensively addresses the various themes relevant to Irish business and society in one coherent volume and should be required reading for all citizens seeking to improve their understanding of modern Ireland. Its economic and social analysis of the `Celtic Tiger' is particularly insightful, reminding me of George Santayana's quote: `Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it'. This book successfully holds that mirror up to our societal structures and institutions in a way that should enable us to learn and develop as a society.' Jim Barry, Chief Executive, NTR plc; member of Council of Patrons, Special Olympics Ireland; board member, The Ireland Funds. 'Irish Business and Society presents the best of Irish social science, neatly packaged around themes of governance, participation, and transformation. Many of these original chapters are brilliantly crafted, and while they show an Ireland slipping off a time of rapid growth, themes of hope abound in enterprise, social and economic partnership, civil society, social inclusion, and Europeanization. Read it through for a clear view of what makes today's Ireland click, and sometimes sputter.' Jon Van Til, Professor Emeritus of Urban Studies and Public Policy, Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA 'This very stimulating book of essays brought me right back to this quote from Tom Stoppard's Arcadia: `It makes me so happy. To be at the beginning again, knowing almost nothing. It's the best possible time to be alive, when almost everything you thought you knew is wrong'. There is a real sense from these essays that, once again, Ireland is at a turning point, in business, society and public governance.' Peter Cassells, Chairman, National Centre for Partnership and Performance; Chairman, DHR Communications; former General Secretary, Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) THE EDITORS John Hogan PhD is a lecturer in Irish politics and international political economy in the Dublin Institute of Technology. His research interests focus on developing frameworks for identifying and understanding policy change, and studying the global regulation of the lobbying industry
