Product Description


This study, in addition to being a major work of historical scholarship, also taps our contemporary consciousness. Donald M. MacRaild, Times Higher Education Migration and Empire is both thoroughly engaging and very readable. I recommend it to anyone wanting, not only to understand a central element of our heritage, but also the current migration streams to this country. Michael Drake, Family and Community History The scholarship is splendid, with wide-ranging temporal and spatial coverage and original research. David Northrup, English Historical Review This book marks something of a landmark in surveys of migration within the British Empire ... a quite staggering scope and depth of research ... a model for survey texts, innovative in its own right; it should be indispensable for teachers, students and scholars for years to come. A. James Hammerton, H-Soz-u-Kult Migration and Empire is the result of an enormous amount of work conducted by two well-respected scholars in the field of British emigration history. The depth and breadth of their combined knowledge is clearly evident in this book. Lisa Chilton, Victorian Studies an important addition to the Oxford History of the British Empire Companion Series ... a narrative that awes us with the scope of movement through the British imperial world but also touches us with the diverse human stories behind the demographic trends. Tilman W. Nechtman, History [a] comprehensive overview ... Both authors approach the subject having already published a large number of books and articles on emigration from the British Isles. They bring this expertise to the present volume in the form of highly detailed statistical data and a familiarity with the wider literature that makes possible a survey of such scope and ambition. Bryan Glass, British Scholar Society It is a highly readable and deeply researched introduction to the topic that ought to be within arm's reach of anyone working on the subject ... Migration and Empire is a meaningful contribution to the series, full of useful statistics for the teacher and researcher and fascinating anecdotes about the experience of the British migrant. Charles V. Reed, H-Net
