Irish, Catholic and Scouse
Irish, Catholic and Scouse: The History of the Liverpool-Irish, 1800-1939 | John Belchem
1 post | 1 read
Liverpool in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was the mirror of Ellis Island: it acted as the great cultural melting pot and processing point of migration from Europe to the United States. Here, for the first time, acclaimed historian John Belchem offers an extensive and groundbreaking social history of the elements of the Irish diaspora that stayed in Liverpoolenriching the citys cultural mix rather than continuing on their journey. Covering the tumultuous period from the Act of Union to the supposed final settlement between Britain and Ireland, this richly illustrated volume will be required reading for anyone interested in the Irish diaspora.
