The American Irish from the Author: William V. Shannon. "My principle in organizing this book has been to emphasize those activities in which the presence of the Irish has made a significant difference as against what might have occurred if no Irish had come to this country. These fields are politics, religion, the theater, literature, and such specialized activities as prizefighting and law enforcement."--Page xv.

The American Irish from the Author: Kevin Kenny. The American Irish: A History, is the first concise, general history of its subject in a generation. It provides a long-overdue synthesis of Irish-American history from the beginnings of emigration in the early eighteenth century to the present day. While most previous accounts of the subject have concentrated on the nineteenth century, and especially the period from the famine (1840s) to Irish independence (1920s), The American Irish: A History incorporates the Ulster Protestant emigration of the eighteenth century and is the first book to include extensive coverage of the twentieth century. Drawing on the most innovative scholarship from both sides of the Atlantic in the last generation, the book offers an extended analysis of the conditions in Ireland that led to mass migration and examines the Irish immigrant experience in the United States in terms of arrival and settlement, social mobility and assimilation, labor, race, gender, politics, and nationalism. It is ideal for courses on Irish history, Irish-American history, and the history of American immigration more generally.

The American Irish And Irish Nationalism from the Author: Seamus P. Metress. The American Irish have traditionally participated in Irish national liberation struggles, an involvement stretching back to the 1840s. This work is the most complete survey of sources covering this participation. It will be of immense value to those working in the area of ethnic studies, political science, history, and popular culture. A historical sketch provides an overview of the motivations and the changing nature of Irish-American involvement, critiques earlier models for the origins of this involvement, and creates the chronological framework used by the bibliography. The annotated bibliography lists the available scholarly and popular literature on the subject and includes useful sections devoted to archival sources and general references.
