<p>Ireland has been rated the number one place to live because it successfully combines the most desirable elements of a modern society—the world’s fourth highest GDP per person and low unemployment—with the preservation of certain cozy elements of the old, such as stable family and community life. </p><p>Michael J. O‘Sullivan presents the globalization of Ireland in a context of international trends in economics, international relations, and politics. His multi-disciplinary approach uncovers many of the weaknesses that lie behind the complacent and clichéd view of the Celtic Tiger. In examining Ireland’s great leap forward from a developing to a postindustrial economy, O‘Sullivan offers valuable lessons to other countries.</p>

Globalization has been kind to Ireland so far, says O'Sullivan, an Irish economist now working in London; but more demanding times await regarding how economic growth can be sustained and foreign policy refined to fit a new international order. He finds of greatest concern whether the state can mediate the effects of globalization on society and public life. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
