Engaging Modernity provides a new and much needed appraisal of Irelands engagement with the phenomenon of modernity. The path we have travelled from being a rural-based, religious, traditional, insular country, to a secular, highly prosperous economic hi-tech centre has brought in its wake both problems and advantages. Engaging Modernity evaluates how in the realms of politics, culture and literature, Ireland has undergone a major paradigm shift.

This book is composed of a selection of papers from a conference held under the auspices of EFACIS (European Federation of Centres and Associations of Irish Studies) in Aarhus (Denmark) in 2001 and organised by Michael Boss. It brought together academics and commentators from many European countries and the book bears witness to a diversity of opinions on Irelands recent evolution.
