Ireland is often used as a test case for globalisation, and it has been heralded as one of the great success stories. Michael O'Sullivan presents the globalisation of Ireland in the 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 cliched view of the Celtic Tiger. In the examination of Ireland's great leap forward from developing to post-industrial economy, "Ireland and the Global Question" offers valuable lessons for other countries.
