Based on extensive research in family and state archives in Ireland, England, and the United States, Professor Keogh studies the influx which followed the Russian pogroms and the establishment of enlarged Jewish communities in Dublin, Belfast, and Cork. The work pays particular emphasis on the relationship between the Jewish community and the Irish State under William T. Cosgave in the 1920’s, and Eamon de Valera between 1932 and 1948.
