The Irish in Philadelphia: Ten Generations of Urban Experience

By Dennis Clark | Go to book overview

NOTE ON SOURCES

Some especially helpful works on the Irish background of this book were Irish Life in the Seventeenth Century, by Edward MacLysaght ( New York: Barnes & Noble, 1969); The Great Famine, edited by R. Dudley Edwards and T. D. William ( New York: New York University Press, 1957) (for rural life in the mid-nineteenth century); The History and Social Influence of the Potato, by Radcliffe Sala man ( Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1949) (for data on social conditions); Sean O'Faolain's King of the Beggars ( New York: Viking Press, 1938) and The Irish ( New York: Devin-Adair Co., 1 90)) (for perceptive political and social commentary); The Fortunes of the Irish Language, by Daniel Corkery (Cork: Mercier Press, 1968) (for linguistic background); F. S. L. Lyons's Ireland since the Famine ( London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1971) (for a wealth of factual material--a work of major stature); and Lewis Perry Curtis 's Coercion and Conciliation in Ireland, 1880-1892: A Study of Conservative Unionism ( Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1963) (for a brilliant summary of conditions in the second half of the nineteenth century).

For demographic study of the Irish background to emigration, The Population of Ireland, 1750-1845, by Kenneth Connell ( Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1950) is essential. The Formation of the Irish Economy, edited by L. M. Cullen (Cork: Mercier Press, 1968), gives a general picture of that field, but The Economic History of Ireland from the Union to the Famine, by George O'Brien ( London: Longman, 1921) is still a standard work.

Books formally dealing with Irish social history include the small volume Social Life its Ireland, 1800-1845, edited by R. B. McDowell ( Dublin: Colm O'Loughlin, 1957) and Kenneth H. Connell's Irish Peasant Society ( Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1968). T. W. Freeman's Ireland: Its Physical, Historical, Social, and Economic Geography ( London: Methuen & Co., 1950) gives social data.
