Inhaltsangabe: This is the definitive analysis of a question of crucial importance to Northern Ireland: why are so many Catholics unemployed or in low-paid jobs? Is it the result of active discrimination by Protestant employers or is it determined by factors within the Catholic community, such as large families, low educational qualifications and living in areas of long-term economic decline? Challenging both these opposed orthodoxies, the book offers a convincing analysis of the present position and evaluates the available remedies.
As a detailed case study of religious discrimination in the labour market, the book will be of interest to scholars and professionals in social demography, sociology, political science, social administration, economics, policy studies and geography.
Rezension: `This well-done study, using data through the early 1980s, is an empirically grounded analysis that examines all the standard variables that might account for the differences between the religious groups. Not surprisingly, at least to outsiders, it finds considerable residual difference that is attributed to discrimination' - Religious Studies Review
