In his preface the editor, Professor Joe Lee, director of New York University's Glucksman Ireland House, defines Irish Studies in an inclusive manner 'to encompass the totality of Irish experience insofar as it can be conceived and comprehended by intellect and imagination'. Four of the articles deal with the Irish emigrant experience in relation to Ulster, Scotland and North America; three are concerned with the European Union; and Allen Feldmen ('Music of the Border: the Northern Fiddler Project, media provenance and the nationalization of Irish music') explores the relatively uncharted waters (in Irish Studies journals at least) of ethnomusicology. In the first category Tom Devine reviews the striking growth of the field of Irish–Scottish Studies; Kerby Miller (interviewed in History Ireland 13 (1) (Jan./Feb. 2005)) contributes another in his series of seminal studies of the relation between Scots-Irish and Irish identities in America; David Doyle examines the role of Irish élites in the development of liberal democracy in the US and Canada; and Marion Casey probes the paradoxes of memory among, and about, business élites in New York City by a careful sifting of the internal records of the Emigrant Savings Bank and of public comment. In the second category Garret FitzGerald, Fiona Creed and Rosarie McCarthy deal with various aspects of Ireland's relationship with the European Union.
