The book is a sociological analysis of immigration in Ireland. It
is the first major comprehensive study of labour and asylum
immigration into Irish society. From the Great Irish Famine until
the 1990s Ireland was historically a country of entrenched
emigration like no other. In 1996 it became the last of the old EU
15 states to become a country of net immigration. From a relatively
homogenous country characterised by Catholicism and rural
development it has become one of the most globalised countries in
the world containing over 188 different nationalities in the space
of a decade. This book blends theoretical and empirical analysis to
examine both the process of immigration and how it has been
interpreted by various social actors. Drawing on qualitative and
quantitative data as well as sociology and political economy it
provides a broad and insightful evaluation of the transformations
wrought by immigration on Irish society. The book will appeal to
undergraduates, postgraduates and those readers who want both an
introduction to immigration and an in-depth analysis of its
repercussions for Irish society. -- .
