Participation in social protest in Ireland has become a widely utilised form of political expression and has played a profoundly important role in generating the wideranging cultural, political, social and economic changes which have shaped Irish society in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The book combines a broad overview of social movement activity in Ireland with an integrated introduction to the major theoretical forms of social movement analysis, and is ideally suited to the needs of students from a wide range of disciplines. By adopting an integrated approach, this landmark text provides new perspectives on international social movement theory, based on the Irish experience. At the same time, a distinct account of the development of Irish society and ongoing social change is provided through the focus on substantive questions ¿ gender, civil rights, rural development, consumerism, environmentalism, language, sectarianism, sexuality, war, globalisation, racism, ethnicity and immigration.
