9780813214207: The American Presence in Ulster: A Diplomatic History, 1796-1996

The American Presence in Ulster tells the story of the link between Ulster and the United States and presents the first general history of the U.S. Consulate in Belfast. While many historians have written about the impact of Ulster on the United States, this book also highlights the profound impact the United States has had on Ulster. The history of the Consulate General provides a unifying theme in this story, and the rich resources of the U.S. State Department and the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland make possible a unique view of both the culture and commerce of the province and also the growth of the Consular Service.

Written in a wonderfully clear and engaging style, this book spans the two hundred years since the opening of the Consulate General in 1796. By the late eighteenth century, almost half a million Ulstermen had migrated to America and strong economic ties had been forged. The linen industry in Ulster obtained most of the flax seed supply from the United States and sold most of its finished cloth to Americans. This was the beginning of a flow across the Atlantic of people and culture, goods and commerce, ideas and good will―a movement that has continued in peace and war, as well as in prosperity and famine, up to the present.

By the 1990s President Bill Clinton was fully engaged in working to promote the Peace Process in Northern Ireland. During his presidency, the Consulate General celebrated the bicentennial anniversary of its founding. It was recognized as one of the first opened by the new republic and one of the longest to have remained in continuous service. It was also heralded as one of the largest in the U.S. Foreign Service. These recent events may have been among the most dramatic examples of the American presence in Northern Ireland, but as this story shows, they have been preceded by a long and colorful history.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Francis M. Carroll is professor of history at the University of Manitoba. His numerous publications include Money for Ireland and A Good and Wise Measure: The Search for the Canadian-American Boundary, winner of the J.W. Dafoe Prize and the Albert B. Corey Prize.



PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

"Lucidly written and exhaustively researched, Francis Carroll's account of The American Presence in Ulster will be of keen interest to diplomatic and social historians alike. This definitive study offers an instructive narrative of the multifaceted interactions between America and the people of Northern Ireland as seen from the perspective of the United States Consulate in Belfast. Extending over the decidedly transformational two-hundred-year period between 1796 and 1996, this book adds notably to our understanding of the Ulster dimension in Anglo-American relations within that expansive time frame."―Thomas E. Hachey, Boston College

"Francis Carroll has produced an excellent study of the American consulate in Belfast since its founding in 1796. Although it is primarily an account of diplomatic history, Carroll casts an important light on developments in Ulster and the U.S. He deals not only with significant early matters, such as eighteenth-century emigration, but he also covers the last thirty-five years of conflict and efforts at conflict resolution in Northern Ireland."―Brian Walker, Queen's University of Belfast

"Although Irish Catholic emigration to the United States greatly outnumbers that of the Protestant tradition, Francis Carroll reminds us in this valuable work that the influence of the Ulster Protestant 'Scotch-Irish' tradition on American development may be traced from American presidents Andrew Jackson to Bill Clinton, their contribution symbolized by John Dunlap who printed the Declaration of Independence. But it was a busy two-way street, for as Carroll also points out, George Washington appointed the first American Consul to Be
