"Joseph Fahey has eloquently brought to life the story of James K. McGuire—the boy mayor of Syracuse, New York, prominent businessman, and leading Irish-American nationalist in the years of Ireland’s struggle for self-government. McGuire was part of the burgeoning Irish-American community in the early twentieth century who were claiming a distinctive place in American society and that was also working to make Ireland a nation once again. McGuire merits a full biography and Fahey’s extensively researched study splendidly fills this gap in our understanding of Irish-American leadership."—Francis Carroll, History Department, University of Manitoba

"A thoroughly enjoyable book offering a view of both Syracuse’s history and American history through the eyes and experiences of a remarkable man, Syracuse’s own Boy Mayor James K. McGuire."—Stephanie A. Miner, Syracuse mayor
