The encroachment of globalization and demands for greater regional autonomy have had a profound effect on the way we picture Ireland. This challenging new look at the key of sovereignty asks us how we should think about the identity of a postnationalist' Ireland. Richard Kearney goes to the heart of the conflict over demand for communal identity - traditionally expressed by nationalism, and the demand for a universal model of citizenship - traditionally expressed by republicanism. In so doing, he asks us to question whether the sacrosanct concept of absolute national sovereignty is becoming a luxury ill afforded in the emerging new Europe. Kearney then takes us beyond the political with chapters on the influence of philosophers such as George Berkeley, John Toland and John Tyndall and looks at some of the myths in Irish poetry and nationhood. Postnationalist Ireland provides a recasting of contemporary Irish politics, culture, literature and philosophy and will appeal to students of these subjects and Irish studies in general.

"In this provocative, timely and challenging study, philosopher Richard Kearney draws on his formidable intellectual abilities to interrogate the vexed question of Irish and English nationalisms, examining such resonant rubrics as sovereignty, republicanism, nationalism and the nation-state. Along with his cogent argument for a movement beyond the nation-state, Kearney argues persuasively for an examination of the myths of national affiliation that underpin national identity and complicate the relationship with competing allegiances to a cosmopolitan identity." -Michael Kenneally, The International Association for the Study of Anglo-Irish Literature "This is a work of vision, a suggestion for new ways of thinking about ourselves and our post-Troubles world which should be required reading for all those involved currently in the Northern Ireland peace process." -Marianne Elliott, University of Liverpool ..."Kearney's book remains an important contribution to the debate over the future of Northern Ireland. His is a rare perspective, moral, balanced, and generally pragmatic." -"Journal of Current History
