″Eamon de Valera is the subject of this biography. From the 1916 Rising, the troubled Treaty negotiations and the Civil War, right through to his retirement after a longer period in power than any other twentieth century leader, de Valera has both defined and divided Ireland. He was directly responsible for the Irish Constitution, Fianna Fail (the largest Irish political party) and the Irish Press Group. He helped create a political church-state monolith with continuing implications for Northern Ireland, the social role of women, the Irish language and the whole concept of an Irish nation. Many of the challenges he confronted are still troubling the peace of Ireland and of Britain, and some of the problems are his legacy.” (Amazon)

Corcoran, RTE and the Globalisation of Irish Television. Corcoran, Farrel. RTE and the Globalisation of Irish Television. Bristol and Portland, Intellect Ltd., 2004. 17.5 cm x 23 cm. 256 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Clean inside with solid binding.

Includes the following chapters: RTE Unsettled / Regulating Irish Broadcasting / Broadcasting and Government / The Economics of Broadcasting / Digital Television / Children and Television / The Difficult Birth of Irish Language Television / Globalisation etc.

″For about 40 years, RTE’s radio and television channels have played an enormous role in shaping Irish social and cultural life.

This work is a study of the structual transformation now taking place in Irish broadcasting. The book focuses on the television sector generally, but primarily on RTE, as it adjusts to a number of radical changes in the global field of forces whose impact began to accelerate in the mid-1990s.

RTE’s work is frequently shrouded in secrecy and mystique, which means that conspiracy theories abound about how it is governed and how it relates to various power centres in Irish life. This book is firmly aimed at increasing the transparency that should characterise public broadcasting, and demystifying this national institution that plays such an enormous role in the cultural and political life of Ireland.” (Publisher)
