This final chapter covers the last two decades of Butler's life, a time of profound social change in Ireland. It notes the emerging liberalization within Irish society during the sixties and seventies, as well as its growing internationalization. It charts Butler's belated recognition both in Ireland and abroad in the 1980s as a gifted essayist and social critic after the publication of successive volumes of his essays by Lilliput Press in Dublin. It identifies him as a forerunner of the pluralistic values that came to prominence in the Republic at the time of his death.

Keywords:   Social liberalization, Euthanasia, Internationalization, Identity politics, Lilliput Press, President Mary Robinson, Pluralism
