More About the Author

I live in Ireland where I work in a research institute and am a regular media commentator on social and planning issues. I'm the author of four novels, the latest of which is STUMPED, and dozens of short stories. In addition to writing crime fiction, I'm the author or editor of 23 academic books and a 12 volume encyclopedia. I write for three blogs - 'The View from the Blue House' (about crime fiction), 'Ireland After NAMA' (about Ireland and the crisis) and 'The Programmable City' (about software, big data and smart cities).

This book is very complete and details the spatial impact of the economic, social and demographic changes that have characterised Ireland in the last 30 years. It is also practical in order to discover the changes in public policy as well as the debates within the academic world.
