This collection offers new insight into the experience of the Irish in New Jersey. The essays remind us of the Irish contribution to the state's history, culture, and politics. You'll learn something new on every page. (Terry Golway, Kean University, author of The Irish in America )
Maura Harrington and Marta Deyrup’s The Irish-American Experience in New Jersey and Metropolitan New York: Cultural Identity, Hybridity, and Commemoration evinces a profound understanding of the Irish-American milieu and the keen scholarship of the editors and contributors. It is very clear that Harrington and Deyrup are in love with the subject they have chosen to portray with depth, subtlety, and variety. The book will advance our appreciation for these people, their time, and their place in our history. (Greg Tobin, author of "The Wisdom of St. Patrick" and "The Good Pope")
The editors have compiled a fascinating collection of essays which analyze and interpret the Irish-American experience. The questions asked are the appropriate ones: What does it mean to be an Irish American? Is there an Irish-American identity?. . . .[The book] . . . provides a worthwhile and valuable contribution to Irish-American history. (New York Irish History)
