Your Place or Mine?


    In Your Place or Mine? sociologist Ethel Crowley takes a look at contemporary Irish attitudes to home, place, family, sexuality and community. Are community values really declining? Despite a more liberal attitude to sexuality, can we call ourselves a liberal society?

    This book captures some of the complexities of modern Ireland and looks at how Irish society has been affected by globalisation and multiculturalism.

    Many books have been written on contemporary Ireland from an economic perspective; in this book Ethel Crowley widens the lens to take a sociological view, asking if there is still a place for the traditional family and community ties in contemporary Ireland. The book combines the sociologist’s eye with personal reflections and stories from the author’s life at home and abroad.

    Your Place or Mine? will pique the interest of anyone curious about how much Irish society has changed in recent years, and how much has stayed the same.
