Brundage illustrates the spectrum of Irish-American views on the labor issue by contrasting the early leftist radicalism of Michael âRed Mikeâ Quill, head of the Transport Workerâs Union, with George Meany, leader of the AFLCIO, whose âvigorous Cold War anti-communismâ in the 1960s made his organization âa byword for political conformity in an era of dramatic social change.â In such a sweeping study as Irish Nationalists in America: The Politics of Exile, 1798â1998, it is understandable that some areas in the history of Irish-Â 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 Devoyâs Catalpa Rescue in 1876, one of the most spectacular successes of Clan na Gael, merits just a one-line mention.
