Description - In Search of Ireland by Professor Brian Graham

In Search of Ireland argues that Ireland's political problems are created by conflicts and confusions of identity. It brings together a number of distinguished contributors, each of whom examines a particular aspect of Ireland's diverse cultural geography and history. Issues covered include: * the changing definitions of Irishness * the roles of class and gender in constructing traditional alignments of identity * the role of ethnicity in Irish society * the invention and imagining of Irish 'place' * the political implications of a pluralistic Ireland The contributors demonstrate that many people both inside and outside of Ireland continue to define themselves and their conflicts through simple sectarian stereotypes. The authors argue that politicians and others must reject these outdated either/or representations and accommodate instead the fluidity of Irish identity.
