This thesis examines the forms of identity which are adopted by individuals who
were born in Birmingham with at least one parent who had been born in Northern
Ireland or the Republic of Ireland and the processes of identity formation which give
life to these identities.
This thesis places the identity and experiences of the research population within the
context of the Anglo-Irish historical relationship, political situation in Northern Ireland
and the events surrounding the 'Birmingham Pub Bombings'. It also positions the
group in relation to recent academic debates regarding race, ethnicity and 'dominant
group identity'. It is intended that this thesis will represent a contribution to these
debates and to the understanding of Irish experience in Britain.
The fieldwork phase of the project was conducted in Birmingham and consisted of
two distinct, yet overlapping stages. Firstly, a survey of the research population
using questionnaires which were distributed to potential respondents by a series of
'gatekeepers'. This provided data and served as a filter to stage two. Secondly,
fifteen semi-structured, in-depth qualitative interviews with members of the cohort.

ГЛАВА 46 Фил Чатрукьян швырнул трубку на рычаг. Линия Джаббы оказалась занята, а службу ожидания соединения Джабба отвергал как хитрый трюк корпорации Американ телефон энд телеграф, рассчитанный на то, чтобы увеличить прибыль: простая фраза Я говорю по другому телефону, я вам перезвоню приносила телефонным компаниям миллионы дополнительных долларов ежегодно.

Отказ Джаббы использовать данную услугу был его личным ответом на требование АН Б о том, чтобы он всегда был доступен по мобильному телефону.
