About the Author

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.


"Sanders has written a fascinating treatment of the turbulent relationship between the Irish and the Yankees in Boston. He offers a sound analysis of why Boston Catholics did not develop a system of parochial schools during this period ... this book will appeal to anyone interested in the history of education in the United States." -- Evan C. Rothera, History of Education
