About this book

Employing the first analysis of the entire population of any British town, this book examines how overseas migrants affected society and culture in South Shields near Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Resituating Britain within global processes of migration and cultural change, it recasts British society pre-1940 as culturally and racially dynamic and diverse.

About the authors

LAURA TABILI Associate Professor of Modern European History at the University of Arizona, USA, and author of We Ask for British Justice: Workers and Racial Difference in Late Imperial Britain. Her articles explore how European global expansion affected class, labour migration, interracial and exogamous marriages and the racialisation of masculinity.

Reviews

'This book provides a valuable addition to the growing literature on migration to the UK during the height of British power.'

- A.M. Wainwright, The University of Akron

'The book calls for a new scholarly perspective with regard to migrants and reveals blank spots within the existing research on migration to Great Britain.' - H-Soz-u-Kult
