Understanding Limerick is an edited collection featuring contributions from leading Irish scholars in the fields of Sociology, Social Policy, Criminology and Urban Geography. Limerick city has some of the most severely disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the Republic of Ireland.
The city has also experienced a range of problems in relation to organized crime, gangland feuding and community violence. This collection seeks to explore how profound social exclusion and poverty-related criminality emerged in Limerick city. The success of criminal justice, child protection and Regeneration based responses in tackling these problems is examined.
Contributors assess what lessons can be learned from Limerick in terms of broader debates about social exclusion, crime and inequality in Irish society. This book is original, innovative, nuanced and important. It is a major contribution to our understanding of how social exclusion and inequality currently works within late-modern cities.
It combines a remarkably powerful explanation of what has gone wrong in Limerick with strong evidence of how to move forward - Professor Máirtín Mac an Ghaill, University of Birmingham
