              Over the past 20 years, the economy of Ireland has experienced a Celtic Tiger boom, a recession, a recovery and a global pandemic - all whilst dealing with the realities of Brexit. In order to fully understand these occurrences and their implications, The Economy of Ireland (14th... edition) takes a holistic examination of the main features, performance and associated policy issues of the Irish Economy. The textbook begins by introducing the economic foundations of Ireland, considering the evolution of the Irish economy over time; the policy priorities for a small regional economy in the eurozone; the role of the state in policy making at national and international levels; taxation and regulatory policy; and the challenge of sustainable development. This provides a framework for analysing policy issues at a national level, including the Irish labour market and migration, inequality and poverty, and the care economy - examined both over time and relative to international experiences. Finally, the book considers issues at a sectoral level, from agriculture and trade to education and health sectors. Packed with the latest available data, contemporary examples and references, as well as discussion and analysis of current topical issues, this is an ideal text for students studying modules on Irish Economics and anyone with a general interest in the history and development of the Irish Economy.

              The Song of Roland
                

              The Song of Roland (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Anonymous; Translated by O'Hagan, John

              In the year 778 A.D., Charles the Great, King of the Franks, returned from a military expedition into Spain, whither he had been led by opportunities offered through dissensions among the Saracens who then dominated that country. On the 15th of August, while his army was marching... through the passes of the Pyrenees, his rear-guard was attacked and annihilated by the Basque inhabitants of the mountains, in the valley of Roncesvaux. About this disaster many popular songs, it is supposed, soon sprang up; and the chief hero whom they celebrated was Hrodland, or Roland, Count of the Marches of Brittany. By the latter part of the eleventh century, when the form of The Song of Roland which we now possess was probably composed, the historical germ of the story had almost disappeared under the mass of legendary accretion. Charlemagne, who was a man of thirty-six at the time of the actual Roncesvaux incident, has become in the poem an old man with a flowing white beard, credited with endless conquests; the Basques have disappeared, and the Saracens have taken their place; the defeat is accounted for by the invention of the treachery of Ganelon; the expedition of 777-778 has become a campaign of seven years; Roland is made the nephew of Charlemagne, leader of the twelve peers, and is provided with a faithful friend Oliver, and betrothed, Alda. Simple almost of bareness in style, without subtlety or high imagination, The Song of Roland is yet not without grandeur; and its patriotic ardor gives it a place as the earliest of the truly national poems of the modern world. This edition follows the translation of John O'Hagan and is printed on premium acid-free paper.
