Give Us Back the Bad Roads

Give Us Back the Bad Roads
In May 1984, John Waters drove to Dublin to begin a career in journalism during which he was to specialise in raising unpopular issues of public importance. Three decades later, with the dust settling on his departure from Irish journalism, he finds himself back in the parish in Sligo where his father grew up a century before, looking back at the hopes and expectations of his youth and thanking his lucky stars to have escaped from the ideological cesspit the Dublin media had become.

In this book, Waters examines in detail the context that led him to walk away from national newspapers, and in particular, as he describes it, the moral, cultural and intellectual deterioration of The Irish Times, for which he had worked for nearly a quarter of a century. Widening his focus, he looks at the implications of such drifts for the culture and welfare of the country, and concludes that the particular package of modernity adopted in his native land is deeply flawed and ultimately unsustainable. It is time, he argues, for us to return the dubious gifts with which we have been seduced into self-destruction, and start over again.
