DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Migration in Irish History, 1607-2007 is the first book to survey the theme of migration in Irish history over four centuries and to examine the dynamic relationship between its immigrants (including return migrants), internal migrants, and emigrants. The approach is based on the reconstruction of individual migration stories, and detailed use is made of maps, paintings and drawings to illustrate the migrant experience.
Key terms are home, family and diaspora. The book traces how Ireland, since the Flight of the Earls (1607) and the Plantation of Ulster, developed as a site of diaspora for the peoples of Britain and rest of the world; and how the countries of the rest of the world developed as sites of diaspora for the peoples of Ireland. It prompts the question of how a better understanding of our migration past might help us meet the current challenges of immigration and building a shared future.

Reviews


CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2009
 
'A very important book. As a comprehensive overview of the period and the topic it is probably without compare. As a student handbook on the topic it is almost certainly ideal. The detail is truly impressive.' - Books Ireland
