Download ✓ The Irish Americans A History 104 Jay Dolan of Notre Dame University is one of America's most acclaimed scholars of immigration and ethnic history In THE IRISH AMERICANS he caps his decades of writing and teaching with this magisterial history of the Irish experience in the United States Although than 30 million Americans claim Irish ancestry no other general account of Irish American history has been published since the 1960s Dolan draws on his own original research and much other recent scholarship to weave a. This book reads somewhat like a text book which it may be and sometimes becomes a bit repetitive but it contains some very interesting information about the Irish in America We usually think of Irish immigration to the US as a result of the Great Potato Famine of the 1840s but it began as early as 1718 when the King James was dethroned by William of Orange and the Protestant church became the law of the land The Catholic Irish swarmed to the colonies in America to escape the Penal Laws which were aimed at them However life wasn t a whole lot better in the soon to be USA and the Irish were only one step up the rung from the African American slaves of the SouthThe narrative follows the growing influence of the Irish in religion politics labor and law enforcement and how against all odds they became powerful movers and shakers in the large cities such as NYC Chicago and Boston And all the names are familiarMayor Jimmy Walker Gov Al Smith who also ran for President Honey Fitz Fitzgerald father of Rose Kennedy Mother Jones labor leader Mayor Richard Daley and the list goes on It culminated with JFK the first Irish Catholic to be elected POTUSThe book drags in a few places and you may find yourself skipping through those parts rather hurriedly but overall it is a fascinating look at Irish immigration and how the Irish overcame the senseless prejudices that in the modern era are now aimed at other ethnic groups in the US Recommended

Download ✓ The Irish Americans A History 104 N insightful colorful narrative He follows the Irish from their first arrival in the American colonies through the bleak days of the potato famine that brought millions of starving immigrants; the trials of ethnic prejudice and No Irish Need Apply; the rise of Irish political power and the heyday of Tammany politics; to the election of John F Kennedy as president a moment of triumph when an Irish American ascended to the highest office in the landDolan evokes the ghastly ships. I borrowed this book from a family member I give it 4 out of 5 stars It is a very readable history of the Irish in the US The author an emeritus professor of history at Notre Dame University starts out with the forgotten era of Irish emigration to the US pre 1840 During this period there was no differentiation between Protestant and Catholic Irish After the famine migration started the Protestant Irish began to call themselves Scotch Irish a term still used today in the US but not in Ireland where the preferred term is Ulster Irish In subseuent chapters he explores Irish contributions in three main areas the Catholic Church politics and labor The Irish came to dominate the church and labor across the US and politics in many big cities along the East coast of the US The final chapter shows that Irish American support for the peace process in Northern Ireland was crucial both financially and politically
