This book is a collection of nine essays exploring the Irish-American experience in the New Jersey and New York metropolitan area, both historically and today. The essays place the local Irish-American experience in the wider context of immigration studies, assimilation, and historical theory. Using case studies, interviews, scholarly research in primary historical documents and theory, and first-hand experience, the authors delve into what it has meant, and means, to be Irish American in the New Jersey and New York area, projecting what this ethnic identity will signify in years to come. Representing a variety of scholarly and professional disciplines, from archivists; to historians; to lawyers; to scholars of literature and theology; the authors share their own unique perspectives on the significance of the contributions of Irish-Americans to American life in various arenas. Each chapter is interdisciplinary, revealing the interconnections among cultural history, biography, contemporary events, and literary appreciation. It is through these intersections of disciplines, of past and present, of individual and community, that we can best analyze and appreciate the ways that Irish-Americans have shaped life in the New Jersey/New York area over the past two centuries.

Review:

This collection offers new insight into the experience of the Irish in New Jersey. The essays remind us of the Irish contribution to the state's history, culture, and politics. You'll learn something new on every page. (Terry Golway, Kean University, author of The Irish in America )

Maura Harrington and Marta Deyrup’s The Irish-American Experience in New Jersey and Metropolitan New York: Cultural Identity, Hybridity, and Commemoration evinces a profound understanding of the Irish-American milieu and the keen scholarship of the editors and contributors. It is very clear that Harrington and Deyrup are in love with the subject they have chosen to portray with depth, subtlety, and variety. The book will advance our appreciation for these people, their time, and their place in our history. (Greg Tobin, author of "The Wisdom of St. Patrick" and "The Good Pope")

The editors have compiled a fascinating collection of essays which analyze and interpret the Irish-American experience. The questions asked are the appropriate ones: What does it mean to be an Irish American? Is there an Irish-American identity?. . . .[The book] . . . provides a worthwhile and valuable contribution to Irish-American history. (New York Irish History)
