In Irish vs. Yankees, James W. Sanders takes a new look at this critical period in the development of Boston schools, from 1822, when Boston officially became a city, to the Second World War. Framing the discussion around the Catholic hierarchy, he considers the interplay of social forces in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that led to the political rise of the Irish Catholic over the native Brahmin and the way this development shaped Boston's schools. From Bishop John Fitzpatrick to Boston College, Sanders introduces a cast of colorful characters and institutions to this tale of the education and religion in one of America's most prominent cities.
James W. Sanders is Professor Emeritus of Educational History at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York where he taught for more than forty years. He is the author of The Education of an Urban Minority: Catholics in Chicago: 1833-1965. He was previously a member of the Jesuit order.
