A chairde,
        Thought this book might be interesting to those who aren't sick
of the whole discussion (I know I'm getting there). At least it moves the
discussion out of 1995 L.A. and into historical context.

Subject: new book
This isn't a personal endorsement -- I've yet to read the book -- but
I thought this might be of interest.  This is a very interesting
topic (ie. the social construction of race) which other
theorist/authors have tackled  (ex. Dave Roediger) -- the Irish
experience is often highlighted in their works.
(advertized in latest edition of the Irish Echo)
by Noel Ignatiev
"...a provocative new social history ... the author makes his case
 with a wealth of anecdotal evidence ..."
                                               -The Boston Herald
"... an interesting and important book..."
                         -The Boston Globe
"...highly readable ... general readers will welcome Ignatiev's
  even-handed presentation of a sensitive subject."
         -The Christian Science Monitor
HOW THE IRISH BECAME WHITE explodes a number of the most powerful
myths surrounding race in our society.  Focusing on how the Irish
were assimilated as "whites" in America, Noel Ignatiev uncovers the
roots of conflict between Irish-Americans and African-Americans and
draws powerful connection between the embracing of white supremacy
and Irish "success" in 19th century American society.
