"The basis of all good historical writing comes down to matters of evidence and these are at the heart of this book... The author proposes a radical in the way that we view the Irish. The author demonstrates that the fundamental 'accepted fact' about the Irish in the New World -- that they were a Roman Catholic 'city people' rests on evidence so shaky as to be nearly valueless. Because the data base for the Irish in the United States is so weak, and because there was so much cross-border movement, the author suggests that the Irish in the New World can be understood only as part of a single North American ethnic body. The superior Canadian data base will help American historians correct many of their misaprehensions" -- Book jacket
