De Valera, censorship and Family and community in Ireland
Byrne, Anne; O'Sullivan, Eoin
Family and community in Ireland, first published in 1940 by Conrad Maynadier Arensberg and Solon Toothaker Kimball, is one of the most influential texts in Irish rural sociology and anthropology. The Harvard Irish Study (1930–6) was composed of three strands—physical anthropology, archaeology and social anthropology. Family and community in Ireland was the first social scientific research utilising contemporary theory (structural functionalism) and research methods (ethnography, qualitative interviews and secondary data) to be carried out in Ireland or, indeed, Europe.
