Irish Nationalists in America

David Brundage

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes the Irish American nationalist movement in a period when it was relative small. It begins with the debate over the Anglo-Irish Treaty and the ensuing Irish Civil War, which confused and demoralized the US movement. It then goes on to discuss residual influences of Irish nationalism in American life, including the labor movement and urban politics. Finally it considers post–World War II developments, such as suburbanization, in furthering the decline of the movement.

Keywords:   Anglo-Irish Treaty, Irish Civil War, labor movement, urban politics, post–World War II
