Keith Woods speaks of the struggle of nationalist Ireland against immigration. Mr. Woods argues that “denationalization” in Ireland began with the effort by the upper middle class in Dublin to show its distinctiveness and social superiority over others, and says the problem was exacerbated by a thirst for economic growth. Mr. Woods offers hope for Ireland because there is no “faux” populist party that can serve as a safety valve to dissipate nationalist resistance. Instead, the political system will be forced to cope with a new force.
