Description

This is an indispensable guide to attitudes to current social and political issues in Northern Ireland. Based on extensive data gathered in the annual Northern Ireland Life and Times survey, it features a series of essays by leading academics that discuss and comment on a wide range of public attitudes to religion, politics and social policy issues. These include devolution and the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement; community relations; attitudes to science and genetic information; education; housing; pensions; transport; social inequality and the rights of the child. This is the eighth volume in this series and is based on data from the 1998 and 1999 surveys, as well as drawing on material from previous years.show more
