Abstract

Book Reviews 483 management, but the book is clear in its limited ambition. The key source of data was freshly released archive material, and this defines the character of the book. Murphy and Puirse´il, for example, build their analysis around previously unpublished opinion poll data on EU entry from the archive. Similarly, there is an attempt in several of the chapters to juxtapose developments on both sides of the border with a marked con- centration of a divergence in the nature of crisis in each jurisdiction. Inevitably, the production process of the book of a special edition is long and, given the title chosen for this one, some generalisations can quickly seem misplaced. Nevertheless, readers may find some of the analysis intriguing. For example, in the light of the most recent general election result, McGraw’s assertion may interest Fianna Fa´il, which he describes as the ‘paradigmatic catch-all party’ (p. 172): Temporary changes in levels of support for individual parties, and the emer- gence from time to time of new parties, should not be confused with major party system change .. . [T]he traditional parties have found novel means by which to preserve their pre-eminence within both the party system
