What's good for Dublin is very good for Ireland. "Dublin's Future: New Visions for Ireland's Capital City" is a collection of essays which for the first time recognises that the future of the island's largest and most important urban conurbation is about more than the engineering of roads and the colouring of development plans, and that the success of Dublin will ensure the success of the nation. Music, literature, housing, ethnic minorities, theatre, energy, and much more all have their role to play in making and sustaining Dublin as firstly Ireland's premier city and economic engine, and secondly as a place where people will want to live, visit, do business, be educated, create, spend, be cared for, be employed in, and in which to age. Contributors are recognised authorities in their fields. They cross sectors of age, private and public, profit and non-profit, and each and every one has something interesting to say about the future of Dublin.
