Irelands of the Mind: Memory and Identity in Modern Irish Culture
Editor: Richard C. Allen and Stephen Regan
Date Of Publication: Jan 2008
Irelands of the Mind: Memory and Identity in Modern Irish Culture offers a compelling series of essays on changing images of Ireland from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. It seeks to understand the various ways in which Ireland has been thought about, not only in fiction, poetry and drama, but in travel writing and tourist brochures, nineteenth-century newspapers, radio talk shows, film adaptations of fictional works, and the music and songs of Van Morrison and Sinéad O’Connor. The prevailing theme throughout the twelve essays that constitute the book is the complicated sense of belonging that continues to characterise so much of modern Irish culture. Questions of nationhood and national identity are given a new and invigorated treatment in the context of a rapidly changing Ireland and a changing set of intellectual methods and approaches.

From Teaching Psychology around the World: Volume 3
“McCarthy states in the preface that the book intends to 'be a current overview of teaching and learning psychology around the world', and this intention is certainly met. While no book can detail absolutely everything going on in psychology teaching and learning, this book really does give a comprehensive overview of current practice in different countries, and also looks to the future in terms of internationalising teaching across the globe. The book is a must-have for those with a keen interest in psychology teaching and learning who want to be kept abreast of current happenings in the field, perhaps for inspiration for their own teaching or just for interest. As academics, we need to be inspired to produce exciting, innovative ways of passing on our enthusiasm for psychology to others, and this book really highlights that through its collection of teaching practices from across the world.”
