The Celtic Tiger has caused the Irish economy to roar ahead, but what has it done to Irish society? Some see the rising tide as having lifted all boats, while others argue that the benefits have accrued mostly to those who were already well placed. Some highlight how economic growth has raised living standards, while others say that it has imposed strains on family life, eroded values and communities, and created problems in accessing adequate housing, health care and other services.

So, are we in Ireland now living in "the best of times," or has increased prosperity come at (too high) a cost? The purpose of this book, which contains a collection of chapters written by some of Ireland's leading social researchers, is to bring to bear the latest research and empirical evidence to answer these questions. It is aimed at a general audience and seeks to contribute to public debate in Ireland, while at the same time striving for rigorous, evidence-based argument.
