Professor Kenny's scholarly work is a valuable addition to the literature on the Molly Maguires and an aid to understanding this tragic episode in the history of Irish-Ammerican immigrant labour. (Seanchas Ard Mhacha: Journal of the Armagh Diocesan Historical Society
Few have ever heard of the Pennsylvanian Molly Maguires. Kevin Kelly certainly makes sense of them in a generously subsidised book which is meticulously researched and referenced, includes enough statistics to support his arguments, and is packed with fascinating details. (Charles Chenevix Trench, Irish Independent (Dublin)
