"Ireland has changed enormously since the 1960s. The old country is barely recognisable today." "Crucial moments in that process of transformation are the subject of Colum Kenny's new book. He recalls a series of linked events which, taken together, fired the engines of social, economic and cultural change in modern Ireland. He gathers his materials by themes: Mother and Child (including education, school beatings, working mums); Violence (including the vanished, random attacks and atrocities); Rituals (including drugs, sport, religion). Other themes are Sexual Relations, Scandals, Politics, Society, Lifestyle and Culture."--BOOK JACKET.
