Faith, Fraternity and Fighting: the Orange and Irish Migrants in England, c.1850-1920

Donald MacRaild

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Despite its prominence, the Irish political group the Orange Order has never been the focus of significant scholarly attention. With Faith, Fraternity and Fighting, Donald MacRaild provides the first serious full-length study of the Orange Order in northern England. Making extensive use of archival materials—many previously unavailable to scholars—he reveals the ways in which Orangeism changed as it spread from Ireland into mainland Britain, becoming less a political movement than a way of life in working-class neighborhoods. Faith, Fraternity and Fighting is an important step in rescuing the history of Orangeism from the stigma of violent sectarianism, and as such it will be of great interest to all students of Irish history and English working-class politics.
