John Ferguson, 1836-1906: Irish Issues in Scottish Politics

Elaine W. McFarland

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Filling an important gap in the knowledge of 19th-century Irish nationalism and the early Scottish labor movement, this book considers the continuing impact of the Irish presence in Scotland in the 19th century. Examined are the mobilization of the migrant community behind Irish nationalism and the implications that this development had for the emergent Scottish labor movement. These issues are addressed through the medium of political biography, focusing on John Ferguson, a colorful figure and one of the leading personalities of 19th-century Irish nationalism. Despite his ranking almost equally with Charles Stewart Parnell and Michael Davitt as a practical politician and strategist, Ferguson has been seriously neglected by historians, until now.
