Papers from a conference on the theme of "Ireland: Going East," organized in 2007 by Wesley Hutchinson and Carle Bonafous-Murat of the University of Paris III - Sorbonne Nouvelle, under the aegis of the French Society for Irish Studies, the SOFEIR (Société française d'études irlandaises)
Includes bibliographical references.
"If Ireland's relations with the Western world have been the object of numerous scientific publications, its links with the East have been neglected by research. The aim of this book is to redress that imbalance by proposing studies of various aspects of Ireland's interactions with the East. It is a multidisciplinary publication, dealing with some of the historical, political, religious, cultural, demographic and sociological connections between Ireland--both North and South--and the East. The chapters, which offer novel perspectives for the field of Irish studies, are organised in a chronological sequence, from the mid-19th century to the present. They focus on three main areas: the links between Ireland and the Asian continent, notably India, China and Turkey; its interactions with the Jewish people and the state of Israel; and its relations with Eastern European countries, in particular Poland and Lithuania"-- Back cover.
