This book attempts to provide an insight into the dramatic changes in Irish lives and attitudes over 50 years of the present century. By surveying newspapers and other public and private records the author has been able to recreate the flavour, feelings, pressures and pleasures of daily living in three representative years, 1907, 1932 and 1963. By comparing from each year the consistently popular concerns of sex, class, religion and nationality he draws a portrait of Irish middle class preoccupations. Illustrated with contemporary photographs, prints and advertizements, this book is a social history that aims to provide insight and entertainment for those whose adult lives began less than 30 years ago and evoke the memories of an older generation.
