An insightful look at the story behind the Celtic Tiger. Ireland was rated the Number One Place to live by the Economist Intelligence Unit, and the Globalisation Index (A.T. Kearney/Foreign Policy Magazine) lists Ireland as the most globalised statein the world.

Ireland is often used as a test case for globalisation, and it has been heralded as one of the great success stories. Michael O'Sullivan presents the globalisation of Ireland in the context of international trends in economics, international relations and politics. His multi-disciplinary approach uncovers many of the weaknesses that lie behind the complacent and clichéd view of the Celtic Tiger. In the examination of Ireland's great leap forward from developing to post-industrial economy Ireland and the Global Question offers valuable lessons for other countries.

5 of 5 Ireland and the Global Question is a sound intelle May 27, 2009
Reviewer: Angel Gurr a OECD Secretary General from Republic of Ireland  
Ireland and the Global Question is a sound intellectual journey that does not aim to find all the answers related to globalisation and its impact  but to ask the right questions with a forward looking approach. The impressive performance of Ireland does not stop the author from being critical of the process and asking difficult questions related to its sustainability in the long term. There is no  one size fits all  approach to the globalisation process and one of the contributions of this thoughtful analysis is precisely to emphasize that countries can learn from each other  but need to get their own policies right. This is the great challenge of our time.
