Very Good-with no dust jacket. 0837178762. Library stamps/marks/labels/pocket, light cock, hinge creak, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "Most accounts of the bloody summer of 1844 have attributed the conflict between the Irish and nativist communities primarily to religious differences. In particular, they focus on the fight between the Catholic clergy and evangelical Protestants over whether Catholic children would be permitted to use the authorized Catholic version of the Bible as an official text during reading exercises in public schools....But this study seeks also to place the struggle between the nativist and Catholics that culminated in the 1844 riots in a wider context, viewing it as an ethnic, rather than simply a religious conflict. By ethnic, I mean a complex of cultural, class, occupational, social and political (as well as religious) differences that isolated the immigrant Catholic Irish in Philadelphia from their native-born, Protestant neighbors."-Preface.
