Virtually every aspect of American culture has been influenced by Irish immigrants and their descendants. This encyclopedia tells the full story of the Irish-American experience, covering immigration, assimilation, and achievement. * Demonstrates the intricate-and far-reaching-nature of the Irish-American connection * Covers the variety of the Irish-American political experience in the North and South rather than focusing only on northern populations * Distinguishes between the experience of Irish Protestants and Irish Catholics * Highlights the Irish propensity for inventiveness in America and Irish contributions to business and technology * Discusses the prominence of the Irish in the Catholic Church in the United States
