New York Irish by Ronald H. Bayor

Book Description

When Ellis Island opened in 1892, nearly four million Irish men and women had already made the journey to America. By the 1990s, Ireland had sent another million or more. New York has been both port of entry and home to the Irish for three centuries. During that time, America's premier city has undergone massive changes, and the Irish-one of the country's oldest ethnic groups-have played a vital part in its history. The New York Irish tackles subjects like the medicalization of anti-immigrant prejudice; entrepreneurship in business; the impact of music and language on ethnic social life; the effect of nationalist movements on local politics; the dynamics of Irish relations with African-Americans, Chinese, and Dominicans; the battle for freedom of religious expression; and the problem of illegal immigration. It offers a fresh perspective on an immigrant people's encounter with the famed metropolis. A joint project of the Irish Institute and the New York Irish History Roundtable

Oxford Handbook of American Immigration and Ethnicity by Ronald H. Bayor Oxford Handbook of American Immigration and Ethnicity, Hardback (August 2016)

"What is the state of the field of immigration and ethnic history; what have scholars learned about previous immigration waves; and where is the field heading? These are the main questions as historians, linguists, sociologists, and political scientists in this book look at past and contemporary immigration and ethnicity"--Provided by publisher.

Columbia Documentary History of Race and Ethnicity in America by Ronald H. Bayor Columbia Documentary History of Race and Ethnicity in America, Hardback (June 2004)

All historians would agree that America is a nation of nations. But what does that mean in terms of the issues that have moved and shaped us as a people? This book illuminates the myriad ways in which immigration, racial, and ethnic histories have shaped the contours of contemporary American society.
