Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 074533055X, Paperback)

During the 1990s and 2000s, the Irish "Celtic Tiger" model of development was hailed as a model for other European countries, but the global economic crisis has completely removed the credibility of Ireland's approach. So where does the country go now?
 
Towards a Second Republic analyzes Ireland's economics, politics, and society, drawing important lessons from its cycles of boom and bust. Peadar Kirby and Mary Murphy expose the winners and losers from the current Irish model of development and relate these distributional outcomes to the use of power by Irish elites. The authors examine the role of the EU and compare Ireland’s crisis and responses to those of other states.
 
More than just an analysis of the economic disaster in Ireland, the book is also a proposal to construct new and more effective institutions for the economy, and society. It is a "must read" for students of Irish politics and political economy.
