In the first decade of the new millennium, Jody Allen Randolph interviewed twenty-two leading Irish poets, artists, fiction writers and playwrights to create a record of how the makers of a culture saw their country as it moved into a new era. Her exploration was shadowed by intimations of unease; as economic collapse gathered pace, recurrent concerns gained a new urgency. What are Irish values? How have they changed? How do new cultural realities affect the old arts of language and image which have been so important in Irish tradition? In journeys across political divides and between languages, from Seamus Heaney and Nuala N í Dhomhnaill, deeply rooted in Irish inheritance,to African-Irish Joyce Akpotor; from Gerry Adams for whom when our future is settled, we will agree on our history', to the artist Dorothy Cross who brings an international perspective to her redefinitions of Irish imagery, Close to the Next Moment captures the conversations that are remaking a culture.

Grider’s work in this monograph invites interlocutors to view human interaction through the lens of labourers in an extremely important industry during a very interesting period in history. The maritime industry was not only an essential vehicle for expanding the processes of capitalism, colonisation, industrialisation and globalisation, which feature so prominently in current debates on social justice and inequality, but also paved the way for international trade and migration of peoples that have become so commonplace in the modern world. The manners in which shifts in gender, race, class and technology irrevocably change labour compositions and conditions, as well as identities and interactions, resonates across epochs and geographies and gives readers from numerous perspectives much to contemplate in their lives and work within the complex terrain of diverse societies, which are arguably the most important developments in modern states.

This book describes the life of a pirate in the early 18th century, the 'Golden Age of Piracy'. It charts the way these men (and a few women) were recruited, how they operated, what they looked like and what prospects their lives held. In the process the book strips away many of the myths associated with piracy to reveal the harsh realities of those who lived beyond the normal bounds of society. Written by pirate expert Angus Konstam, the book draws on decades of research into the subject, and pulls together information from a myriad of sources including official reports, contemporary newspaper reports, trial proceedings and court testimony last words on the scaffold, letters and diaries as well as archaeological evidence and relevant objects and artefacts from museum collections on both sides of the Atlantic. A must have for fans of the classic pirate stories or warfare in the early 18th century.
