This book is based on research and observations undertaken for the author's doctoral research at the National University of Ireland, and represents a case study of national and regional campaigns against both the Irish state s Regional Waste Management Plans and the corporate sector s attempts to develop waste incinerators or dumps in various parts of Ireland. This book provides an in depth account of the mobilizing patterns and framing processes of community campaigns which emerged in the wake of the Irish state s introduction of regional plans for waste management, which included plans for municipal waste to energy plants or incinerators. It is the only book with a sole focus on this aspect of Irish society during the Celtic Tiger boom which preceded the current economic downturn, and examines policy, population, development social issues and local and national electoral processes in detail at a time of immense change in the Republic of Ireland. As such, it provides a salient insight into the societal shifts which provide opportunities for social movements to oppose state or corporate plans which may be perceived to have human health or environmental risks associated with them.

Review:

Leonard (business and humanities, Institute of Technology, Ireland) provides a case study of national and regional campaigns against Irish government's Regional Waste Management Plans and corporate efforts to deploy waste incinerators or dumps in different parts of Ireland. Based on the author's PhD thesis, the study focuses primarily on the western Irish city of Galway and traces the mobilization and processes that emerged to counter the government's plans. Essentially, the author offers sharp insights into societal shifts that generate movements to oppose state or corporate plans which might be considered health or environmental risks. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR
