    Excellent read. This is a somewhat advanced introductory text to the study of Sociology that explores major theorists to a complexity that makes this more sophisticated than your average textbook. Of course, the book centers Ireland as the object of study, and thus tilts traditional American and British sociologies which have a much different global experience than the smaller, highly emigrating, post-colonial Ireland. For the same reason, however, there were many areas where the authors had to admit "there is no Irish research on this topic," which left me curious as to future developments in the field, but a little disappointed that a great bulk of the sociological theory discussed had no applicable Irish sociological research to illustrate. Sociology of Ireland is best described as a Sociology 101 text, and only secondarily a work of Irish studies. For an intro text, it makes for a good one. I found that it covers many important sociological questions in detail, revisiting key theorists throughout the chapters by positioning them in a dialogue, and demonstrating how their voices still resonate with modern social issues.
