Summary
The Irish are now among the oldest and best integrated groups in our society. The election of John F. Kennedy to the presidency demonstrates how much they are taken for granted by other Americans. This book puts forward an interpretation of the Irish based upon their history and culture, not upon their race in any biological sense. The Catholic religion has been a major component in the history and culture of the American Irish. With minor exceptions, this book discusses only the Catholic Irish. Because I am interested only in those who thought of themselves as Irish and who are related to the Irish community in some meaningful way, I have not tried in the name of racial imperialism to track down and annex to this story every person of remote Irish ancestry. The main story of the Irish in America begins with the famine generation who began to come to this country after 1830. My principle in organizing this book has been to emphasize those activities in which the presence of the Irish has made a significant difference as against what might have occurred if no Irish had come to this country. These fields are politics, religion, the theater, literature, and such specialized activities as prizefighting and law enforcement. - Preface
