Celtic Politics offers a model of politics that facilitates the analysis of the Celtic fringe in the political life of Great Britain and Ireland. It is a much-needed corrective to the standard academic approach to British, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish politics and history. This book will help readers conceptualize and understand the Scots, Irish, and Welsh, as well as their interconnected political contexts and systems. Politics in twenty-first century Britain and Ireland have recently seen a rise in ethno-nationalism. This is due to the institutional changes, transformations of political cultures, and geo-political alterations that took place in the latter decades of the twentieth century, widely impacting the status of Celtic nations. Celtic Politics provides a concise explanation of the political development of these nations and illuminates the overall historical significance of this region.
