Ambiguous RepublicMoreHard-nosed scholarship and moral passion underpin Diarmaid Ferriters work. Now he turns to the key years of the 70s, when after half a century of independence, questions were being asked about the old ways of doing things. Ambiguous Republic considers the widespread social, cultural, economic and political upheavals of the decade, a decade when Ireland joined the EEC- when for the first time a majority of the population lived in urban areas- when economic challenges abounded- which saw too an increasingly visible feminist moment, and institutions including the Church began to be subjected to criticism. Diarmaid Ferriters earlier books have been described as a landmark and an immense contribution- making brilliant use of new sources- prodigiously gifted, and groundbreaking. All those words apply to this important book based on recently opened archives and unique access to the papers of Jack Lynch and Liam Cosgrave.
