Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Lavishly illustrated with paintings and vintage photographs, this coffee-table book tells the story of the seven million Irish who immigrated to America and their more than 40 million living descendants.

If you are of Irish descent (and are proud of it) and live in America, you should own and proudly dislay a copy of this book. It is a beautiful pictoral presentation of how the Irish immigrated, integrated, and adjusted to life in this country.
By a quirk of fate I can be found in the two page picture of the Murphy family reunion of 1988 on pages 188 and 189.

This wonderful narrative of Irish American history is worth it's weight in gold even for its generous display of historical photographs. Definitely recommend... especially for the Irish.

Format: Hardcover
Very dated book full of inaccuracies about Irish history. This is not a book to read if you are interested in irish history but it's a great book to read if you want a "Rah Rah Irish people are awesome" book. It is very ethnocentric and skips over any part of Irish history not comlimentary (which is why 2000 years of Irish history before the Potato Famine are covered in about 4 pages. The fact that he mentions how fashionable it is to be Irish tells lots. He also roped non-Irish famous people in the pot to fashion them as Irish. I was disappointed. It's better to see recently BBC Ireland produced documentaries to learn about the real Ireland. This is a great book for bigoted Irish American Catholics to feel they are better than others. I am Irish, by the way.
