This is the scholarly standard study regarding eighteenth century immigration, prior to the American Revolution, of thousands of people of mostly Scottish background and Protestant religion from Ulster to North America. A detailed examination of the economic, social, and political background is included as well as information on the background and motivations of the immigrants. A primary focus is the impact of the rents, prices, and wages as incentives to emigrate.

That says it all. 153 bucks, 78 for used copy. That's how much somebody doesn't want the real history of the Scots in America known. To actually have people know how many Scots who came through Ulster truly made America---- that would be a new vision, wouldn't it? Sadly, many especially in the american south know nothing of the country's Scottish roots, as it was withheld from them in this way. Who can afford such a book??? A true travesty. When the Ulster-Scots, the "Scotch Irish" FOUGHT the American Revolution and much more, and get nothing except crapped on as colonists, with all the crappy movies about appalachians and the southern people by the current elites. (It is so important, that important, to make it seem that that they were all like people from the movie Deliverance.) The real roots of the country cannot be taught. No, no one will read this book, b/c it is 158 bucks for a paperback!!
