"This is the best ethnographic monograph on the changing dimensions of Irish society that has been written by anthropologists in the last twenty years. It should serve as a model of engaged, responsive, respectful, and beneficent ethnography, not just for scholars of and in Ireland, but also for a global anthropology that seeks a better public role. Its explicit comparative framework, interlaced with remarkably empathetic appreciation of the project’s participants’ everyday and daily lives, reminds us that anthropologists can contribute often and well to the social sciences and the humanities."
