Abstract

the Irish Socialist Federation in New York between 1903–1910—there was much greater acceptance of moderate forms of trade unionism and progressive labor reforms. Brundage illustrates the spectrum of Irish-American views on the labor issue by contrasting the early leftist radicalism of Michael “Red Mike” Quill, head of the Transport Worker’s Union, with George Meany, leader of the AFLCIO, whose “vigorous Cold War anti-communism” in the 1960s made his organization “a byword for political conformity in an era of dramatic social change.” In such a sweeping study as Irish Nationalists in America: The Politics of Exile, 1798–1998, it is understandable that some areas in the history of Irish-­ merican nationalism would receive more emphasis than others. Generally, Brundage maintains a judicious balance between the principal themes of his analysis and key developments in Irish-American nationalism. There are, however, some questionable editorial choices. It is surprising, for example, that John Devoy’s Catalpa Rescue in 1876, one of the most spectacular successes of Clan na Gael, merits just a one-line mention. Of greater concern is Brundage’s failure to include a section on central aspects of Irish-American involvement during the Northern Irish Troubles after 1969—for example, Irish-American gunrunning to the Provisional IRA,
