This book is a unique study of the ordinary members of Fine Gael, based on an extensive survey of over 1,700 party members. This is the first such analysis of any Irish political party. After an examination of the historical record of the Fine Gael party, the book explores the questions of who the members are, what they do, why they do it, and whether the party gains any electoral benefit from having members. Is the Fine Gael party demoralized or is the organization at grass-roots level thriving?
The book presents and explores the views of members on current issues and political personalities, and provides answers to questions such as: what do Fine Gael members identify as the crucial difference between their party and Fianna Fail; what do they think about Fine Gael's prospects, and who is the most highly rated of those who have served as Taoiseach?
The analysis is presented in a lucidly written text, using eye-catching graphics and straightforward tables, accompanied by a fascinating set of photographs. This book will appeal to anyone interested in Irish history and/or Irish politics.
