Ireland in the World-System: An Interview with Denis O'Hearn

Aidan Beatty, Sharae Deckard, Maurice Coakley, Denis O'Hearn

Abstract


In this interview, Denis O’Hearn presents his views of Ireland’s historical and contemporary status in the capitalist world-system and which countries Ireland could be profitably compared with.  He discusses how Ireland has changed since the publication of his well-known work on "The Atlantic Economy" (2001) and addresses questions related to the European Union and the looming break-up of Britain as well as contemporary Irish politics on both sides of the border. O’Hearn also touches on the current state of Irish academia.
