A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This fascinating study reveals the desperate plight of the poor, illegitimate and abused children in an Irish society that claimed to cherish and hold them sacred, but in fact marginalised and ignored them. It closely examines the history of childhood in post-independence Ireland, and it breaks new ground in examining the role of the state in caring for its most vulnerable citizens. Maguire gives voice to those children who formed a significant proportion of the Irish population, but who have been ignored in the historical record. More importantly, it uses their experiences as lenses through which to re-evaluate Catholic influence in post-independence Irish society. An essential and timely work, this book offers a different interpretation of the relationships between the Catholic Church, the political establishment, and Irish people; it is important for academics and non-academics interested in the history of family and childhood as well as twentieth-century Irish social history.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This fascinating study reveals the desperate plight of the poor, neglected, illegitimate, and abused children in an Irish society that claimed to 'cherish' and hold them sacred, but in fact marginalized and ignored them. This is the first book to examine the history of childhood in post-independence Ireland, and it breaks new ground in examining the role of the state in caring for its most vulnerable citizens. This book will be important for those interested in the history of family and childhood, and twentieth century Irish social history. In foregrounding policy and practise as it related to poor, illegitimate, and abused children, this book gives voice to historical actors who formed a significant proportion of the Irish population but who have been ignored and marginalized in the historical record. More importantly, this book uses the experiences of those children as lenses through which to re-evaluate Catholic influence in post-independence Irish society. The historiography on church and state in modern Ireland tends to emphasise the formal means through which the church sought to ensure that Irish social policy was infused with Catholic principles. While it is almost cliche to suggest that the Catholic Church exerted influence over many aspects of Irish life, there have been few attempts to examine what this meant in practical terms. This book is an essential and timely work, offering a different interpretation of the relationship between and among the Catholic Church, the political establishment, and Irish people.
