majority of historians address the relationship between abolitionism and the rise of political nativism in the mid-1840s--generated by Catholic opposition to the use of the King James Bible in the public schools, the mob violence against Catholics in the North, and the popularity of the escaped-nun genre in American literature--they have avoided a more indepth examination of the underlying origins of anti-Catholicism. Indeed, as it relates to current scholarship, the relationship between anti-Catholicism and antislavery is not only complex but woefully understudied. American Slavery, Irish Freedom should inspire historians to think more seriously about the reality of an antislavery and anti-Catholic dialectic woven into America's nationalistic mindset.
