Boston Irish: A Political History
Thomas H. O’Connor (au)
Examines the colorful & rich history of Boston Irish politics from colonial days to the present. Puritan Boston shaped a distinctive ethnic community that in turn influenced the traditions & institutions of the city. Irish political dominance in Boston grew out of generations of bitter conflict between Irish Catholic immigrants & Yankees, a homogeneous, long-estab. Anglo-Saxon population hostile toward the Irish & all things Roman Catholic. Charts the course of the Irish’s growing political influence in Boston against the background of this clash between different cultures. Offers insights into the unique experience of the Boston Irish community & provides a lively portrait of the men & women who made their way through the long & tortuous maze of Boston politics. Illus.
