This book explores how Ireland’s community media outlets reflect and shape identity at the local level. While aspects of its culture date back centuries, the nation-state of Ireland is less than one hundred years old. Because of this and other elements of the island’s history, Irish identity is a contested topic and the island is a place where culture, identity and geography are tightly intertwined. By addressing how community media serve as agents for community building, the book examines how they in turn influence the way individuals connect with their communities.

The struggle to create and sustain meaning in our everyday lives is fought using cultural ingredients to spin the webs of meaning that keep us going. To help reveal the complexity and intricacy of the webs of meaning in which they are suspended, Tom Inglis interviewed one-hundred people in their native home of Ireland to discover what was most important and meaningful for them in their lives. Inglis believes language is a medium: there is never an exact correspondence between what is said and what is felt and understood. Using a variety of theoretical lenses developed within sociology and anthropology, Inglis places their lives within the context of Ireland's social and cultural transformations, and of longer-term processes of change such as increased globalisation, individualisation, and informalisation.

Ireland has undergone huge change in recent times. Its economy moved from 'basket case' to 'tiger', its quality of life ranked as the best in the world, and its society became more open and outward-looking under the pressures of globalization. Yet this state of affairs was given a severe shock by the global economic crisis; Ireland found itself in the eye of the storm, and has once more been forced to adapt socially, politically and economically. This concise and lively book gives a comprehensive account of today's Ireland. Written by an acknowledged expert, it gives a realistic picture of Ireland's changing fortunes and of Irish life in the twenty-first century. Each aspect of Ireland's politics, economy, society and culture is systematically unpacked and set in historical context. The text is enlivened throughout with photographs and with boxes on topics ranging from the pronunciation of Irish names to Ireland's international identity 'between Boston and Berlin'. Assuming no prior knowledge and combining clarity with rigor, Contemporary Ireland is the ideal introduction to this fascinating country.

Auf den europäischen und globalen Arbeitsmärkten ist im Zuge der Finanzkrise eine zunehmende Prekarisierung zu beobachten. Ausgehend von diesem Befund lenken die Autorinnen und Autoren den Blick auf neue soziale Ungleichheiten in Europa und dabei auf die Folgen einer – am deutschen Modell ausgerichteten – aktivierenden, marktkonformen Regulierung von Arbeit: Die Rezepte des »deutschen Jobwunders« verhindern Wachstum geradezu, tragen wenig zur Lösung der Schuldenproblematik bei und verstärken die Gefahr sozialer, ja gewalttätiger Konflikte. Das Buch liefert eine Bestandsaufnahme der aktuellen Arbeitsmarktsituation in Europa, diskutiert kritisch die Übertragbarkeit des deutschen Modells und skizziert darüber hinaus alternative Ansätze einer nachhaltigeren Arbeitspolitik und Wirtschaftsdemokratie. Mit Beiträgen von Brigitte Aulenbacher, Martin Baethge, Martin Beckmann, Adelheid Biesecker, Kristina Binner, Gerhard Bosch, Maria Dammayr, Klaus Dörre, Nico Dragano, François Dubet, Kerstin Jürgens, Steffen Lehndorff, Steffen Liebig, Josep Banyuls Llopis, Maria Markantonatou, Albert Recio, Stefan Schmalz, Olaf Struck, Hans-Jürgen Urban, Edward Webster, James Wickham und Erik Olin Wright.

What difference has the EU made to Ireland and, for that matter, Ireland to the EU? This major new study of Irish-European relations provides a rich account of Ireland's membership of the EU and the impact of the EU on the institutions, policy and economy of Ireland It will be read with benefit by all who want to further understand what Europe means for Ireland and those wanting to learn from Ireland's experience in a comparative context.

This is the first volume in a series on recent developments, international and comparative perspectives. As social professions are more and more forced to walk a pathway of cut-backs and political restrictions under supposedly democratic goals, this book aims at taking an active part in the international debate around the political responsibility of those working in the field, aiming as well at bringing together the different areas of professional work in the social science field. The contributions of the first volume deal with subjects connected to social integration -- the more practically oriented contributions are: The systems of guaranteeing sufficient resources in the Republic of France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; Anti-racism, citizenship and integration in contemporary France; Enduring Inequalities in Transitions to Labour: Class, Education and Community Disadvantage in Ireland; Two further contributions on Faith, State and Charity and aspects of the changing political environment of applied social studies.

Based on data from the International Society Survey Programme (ISSP), an international co-operative project of cross-national survey research carried out on an annual basis across 41 countries, the book comprises an analysis of social and attitudinal change in Ireland over a period of unprecedented societal transformation, by a group of experts from the Social Science Research Centre, UCD and their associate, Michael Hout, Professor of Sociology at the University of California at Berkeley. The book provides a source of measuring attitudes "before and after" the boom on a variety of important themes in international comparison at a crucial time of increasing globalisation. Three main areas are covered: economic aspects of change; family and gender; and cultural change. Changing Ireland in International Comparison is an essential reference for lecturers and students of social science, as well as policy-makers, commentators and anybody interested in today's Ireland.
