Editorial Reviews


'the watchwords of this book are diversity, complexity, variety, and heterogeneity'.Irish Economic and Social History

From the Back Cover

Irish emigration during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is a core issue in the history of Britain and the New World. This book brings together articles which provide an overview of the Irish Diaspora from a global perspective. It combines a series of survey articles on the major destinations of the Diaspora, ranging across North America, Britain and her colonies.

draws together historians, demographers, economists, sociologists and geographers, which includes a number of leading authorities in the field. With an interdisciplinary approach, the book provides the first comprehensive survey of the topic. Questioning myths associated with the religious character, identity and relations between host community and Irish migrants, it re-evaluates the economic and social success and failure of Irish immigrants in different contexts, also addressing gender differences.

presents a kaleidoscopic exploration of the diversity and complexity of the Irish migration experience, focusing on key debates for the twenty-first century, which will make it essential reading for those interested in new perspectives on emigration studies and the Irish at home and abroad.
