The British Migrant Experience 1700-2000 is a wide-ranging collection of first person accounts together with introductory essays, capturing varied aspects of the British migrant story from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. Building on recent interest in the social, psychological and historical aspects of population movement within and into mainland Britain, this anthology contributes to the current debate on British national identities, and introduces readers to aspects of imperial and colonial history, the history of autobiography and self-narration, and post-colonial literature.

Leserkritik

'The descriptions of communities and individuals - I lived on turnips, mainly - are useful, but it is the thoughts and feelings, from anxiety to luck, that stand out. They also help to make the book enlightening: for alongside material on the familiar Irish, Jewish and black migrants, there are accounts of Latvians in Bedford, Lithuanians in Lanarkshire and a Moroccan in Exeter who sells rhubarb. And these tales add up to a striking view of Britain.' - Daniel Crewe, Times Literary Supplement
