Constituting Identity : Political Identity Formation and the Constitution in Post-independence Ireland
about this item
This title was first published in 2001. Provides an in-depth analysis of the constitutional representation of Ireland and its citizens. In a society built on contradictions, it is appropriate that the so-called foundational document of the polity is itself a complex of conflicting positions. The Irish Constitution can, in this sense, be read in a manner similar to the texts of literary modernism, as a repository of irreconcilable ideas, which together make up the text.
