"Thomas H. O'Connor is a professor of history at Boston College and a native of South Boston and, according to Jack Beatty, Curley's biographer, 'the dean of Boston historians.' In this book, he earns that title, embodying as he does the best aspects of the two Irish strains - openness and loyalty . . . Because he has mastered Boston politics' deep past, Mr. O'Connor is able to give us, in the concluding chapters, the best recounting of the contemporary scene that I have seen." --James Carroll, New York Times Book Review

Book Description:

* Brings to life the colourful story of Boston's Irish - Honey Fitz, the Kennedy's, James Michael Curley, and other political heroes and scoundrels.
