MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book represents a laudable contribution to American ethnic studies. ...Irish American Voluntary Organizations provides an excellent guide to some seventy bodies. The majority of organizations listed are national in scope, some have expired; others retain their prominence and nearly all have occupied a place of some importance in the American scene. The coverage of each group is encyclopedic in nature, for this is no mere directory. For each citation, the background events leading to the formation of the group is given, with comments on the organization's structure, purpose, history, leaders, major activities, achievements, and failures. The assessments are fair and balanced."-Special Libraries Association
"Author Michael Funchion lists all of the hundreds of Irish-American groups formed since 1737, and gives us a sketch of each. ... This is a book that belongs in every public library, where it can be made available to those Irish-American students who are interested in learning more about the history of the Irish in this country."-Irish Echo
