An informed history of the Irish community in Boston.

From the Back Cover:

According to Thomas O'Connor, Irish political dominance in Boston grew out of generations of bitter and unyielding conflict between Yankees and Irish Catholic immigrants. Unlike the Irish in other American cities, the settlers in Boston encountered a homogenous, long-established Anglo-Saxon population openly hostile toward the Irish and all things Roman Catholic. O'Connor charts the course of the Irish's growing political influence in Boston against the background of this clash between two different cultures. He argues that Irish politicians established a distinct philosophy of government that often shifted from traditional Democratic leadership to local neighborhood populism.

About the Author:

Thomas H. O'Connor is Professor of History at Boston College. He is the author of numerous books on Boston's history, including Building a New Boston and South Boston: My Home Town, The History of an Ethnic Neighborhood
