The Great Famine and Beyond

Irish Migrants in Britain in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries

Edited by: Donald M. MacRaild

?The Great Famine and Beyond presents some of the most important findings. Many of the essays in this collection challenge the assumption that the Irish assimilated relatively easily into British society: reports of ?ethnic fade? have been exaggerated.? The Irish Times ?The Great Famine and Beyond is an extremely valuable addition to the historiography of the Irish in Britain and will be warmly welcomed by students of Irish migration more generally. It provides evidence of the continuing vitality of the field and addresses issues of concern to all historians of migration and ethnicity. It will be a key reference point for students and researches for some time to come.? Reviews in History
