Product Overview

"Written with quiet assurance and understated authority, Cormac Ó Grá da's richly detailed look at a small group of people tells us something very important about the economic history of Ireland and about the gaps in that society that Jews could fill. It also shows how Jews in general made ends meet in the merciless economics of Diaspora. But, most importantly, this book tells us how even a small ethnic community can embody a powerful economic principle; how culture, religion, tradition, and investment in different kinds of human capital play roles in the formation and operation of economic institutions."--Joel Mokyr, Northwestern University, author of" Gifts of Athena"

"Cormac Ó Grá da has written a fascinating economic and demographic history of Irish Jewry in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He tracks the emergence and subsequent shrinkage of this Ashkenazic Jewish community. This is an outstanding addition to the growing literature on the history of very small Diaspora communities. The writing style will attract both scholars and history buffs of Ireland and of Diaspora Jewry."--Barry R. Chiswick, University of Illinois at Chicago, author of "The Economics of Immigration"

""Jewish Ireland in the Age of Joyce" compels a reconsideration of innumerable assumptions about Joyce's picture of Dublin, and this landmark work should spark off a fundamental debate about the relationship between imaginative literature and history. Sure to be pored over by specialists in a wide range of fields, this is one of the most exciting examples of scholarly enquiry I have read in many years."--J. J. Lee, New York University and University College, Cork, author of "Ireland, 1912-1985: Politics and Society"
