1 - 2 weeks availability
Few topics are as pertinent to the American political scene as immigration. This timely book examines the attitude of American Evangelical Protestants towards immigration into the United States before the Immigration Act of 1924. Of particular interest are the effects, as seen by evangelicals, that immigration had in the cities, in education, in politics, and on one of the evangelical's basic quests: the prohibition of alcohol. It also addresses the rise of the 19th century evangelical's main ethnic opponent, the Irish immigrant, and the Irish dominance of the American Catholic Church. The text is based largely upon the writings, speeches, and sermons of evangelicalism.
