"The essays in this collection are to Irish studies what B. B. King and the Chicago Blues are to the Delta Blues: they draw on an existing body of work, virtuosically extend it, and at the same time electrify it, creating new forms in the process. In this respect, this collection is the book that many in Irish studies have been waiting for." Margot Backus, author of The Gothic Family Romance: Heterosexuality, Child Sacrifice, and the Anglo-Irish Colonial Order "Diane Negra has built a dynamic cultural studies anthology from the sophisticated research of a new generation of scholars. 'Irishness,' still an attractive or scandalous stereotype, is here understood through reflection on nation, ethnicity, class, and gender--reflection that is in turn animated by the obtuseness of 'Irishness' in its newly global situation. Expressing a variety of views through vivid examples, this anthology becomes itself exemplary." Dudley Andrew, Yale University
