Description
 
Tom Hayden (au). For generations, Irish Americans -- like many other Americans -- have embraced an assimilation process that requires a forgetfulness of ethnic roots & a misleading Anglicized version of the ongoing conflict in Ireland. Hayden was one of those assimilated ones, learning nothing of his Irish heritage until he was forced to confront his identity in 1968. This is a story of how assimilation can go too far, & why. It is a story of recovering invisible roots in order to become fuller, more grounded human beings. Hayden writes about the tormented province of Northern Ireland with sympathy & clarity, & takes the American political & journalistic establishment to task for its pro-British bias. He forces us to rethink what being Irish is all about.
