Textures of Irish America by Lawrence John McCaffrey( )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "textures" of the Irish-American experience have been manifold, greatly influencing this country's economic, social, and cultural development over the past two centuries. Unlike that of many other European immigrants, the Irish journey to America was viewed largely as a one-way trip. They quickly adjusted to America, soon becoming citizens and active participants in politics. By the end of the 19th century, they dominated not only most American cities but also sports, especially baseball, and many were prominent in show business. In this entertaining study of one of America's most engaging and controversial groups, Lawrence McCaffrey reveals how the Irish adapted to urban life, progressing from unskilled working class to solid middle class. Denied power and influence in business and commerce, they achieved both through politics and the Catholic church. In addition to politicians and churchmen, McCaffrey discusses the roles of writers such as Finley Peter Dunne, James T. Farrell, Eugene O'Neill, J.F. Powers, Edwin O'Connor, William Kennedy, Elizabeth Cullinan, Tom Flanagan, Thomas Fleming, Jimmy Breslin, and John Gregory Dunne, as well as such film stars as Jimmy Cagney, Bing Crosby, Grace and Gene Kelly, and Spencer Tracy. McCaffrey completes the story with a look at the role of Irish nationalism in developing the personality of Irish America and in liberating Ireland from British colonialism. The result of some forty years of thinking and writing about Irish-American life, McCaffrey's Textures will appeal to scholars and general readers alike and may very well become the standard work on Irish America

The Irish question : two centuries of conflict by Lawrence John McCaffrey( )

15 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this completely revised and updated edition of The Irish Question, Lawrence J. McCaffrey extends his classic analysis of Irish nationalism to the present day, including new information on the Irish Civil War, the formation of the Irish Republic, the bitter sectarian struggle in Northern Ireland, and the 1994 ceasefire. McCaffrey makes clear the tortured history of British-Irish relations and offers insight into the difficulties now facing those who hope to create a permanent peace in Northern Ireland. The bitter dissensions created by the Irish Question left permanent marks on British politics and institutions, contributing to political confusion and instability. And the 1921 partitioning of Ireland has resulted in decades of sectarian violence. McCaffrey traces how, beginning in the 1970s, politicians in London and Dublin gradually reached consensus in their approach to Northern Ireland, a consensus that produced the 1994 ceasefire and a promise of negotiations that may lead to permanent peace and a satisfactory political accommodation. Unfortunately, as he also makes clear, centuries of cultural conflict and unshared history do not suggest an easy solution. With an entirely new chapter covering recent events in Ireland and a new conclusion, this edition of The Irish Question will be a critical asset to anyone concerned with the history of Ireland. Students, scholars, and general readers alike will find this well written and accessible volume a welcome addition to their shelves

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Chicago, when you ask Catholics where they live, they almost invariably give the name of their parish rather than the name of the street - an indication of the importance of the parish to the catholic community. The migration of population to outlying suburbs, however, and a growing shortage of priests and sisters has forced some painful decisions on parishes - but also stimulated new and creatie ideas. -- Radharc films
