THE IRISH IN ONTARIO: a study in rural history

Edition: First printing

Kingston & Montreal: McGill - Queens University Press, 1984. Orange pictorial cloth without jacket, as issued. xxxix & 404 pp, illustrated, index. " For most of the nineteenth century, the Irish formed the largest non-French ethnic group in central Canada. Akenson provides a detailed analysis of the process of their settlement and adaptation in an eastern Ontario township. He dispels some of the myths about the Irish as urban dwellers, and offers new assessments of the differences between Irish Protestants and Irish Catholics as they appeared outside the turbulent homeland. This fresh approach to conventional assumptions brings new insights to the history of the Irish, not only in Ontario, but throughout North America." Ink gift inscription at front, former private owner's blindstamp on a few leaves, VG clean & unworn otherwise. ; Octavo 0773505911
