The Columbia Guide to Irish American History was originally published in print in 2005. It provides a historical overview, debates by various historians, an annotated bibliography, a chronology of key events, and a biographical glossary of important individuals. This work also compares the Irish experiences in Canada, Britain, and Australia.

Moreover, this title highlights Irish migration patterns and the impact of the Catholic Church on the immigrant experience. It also shares how Irish Americans influenced U.S. politics and modern urban popular culture. 

Come to the library to see more Irish American Heritage-related titles on display.
