A Global Clan PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Global Clan free pdf Through a unique approach connecting personal accounts to 'networks' of kin and social groups, 'A Global Clan' engages in expanding debates on migration that link imperial history and the European diaspora. Migration from Scotland since the eighteenth century has been a powerful force, influencing the politics, economics, demography, sociology, and culture of many regions across the world. This book uses new material to explore Scottish migrant networks, identities, and personal experiences in areas as diverse as India, New Zealand, and Canada. Assorted migrant voices are presented, from Ellis Island and Australia, the tracts of transients in Asia and the Caribbean, and voluminous correspondence from North America. The overarching approach promises a significant contribution to the historiography that will make it essential reading for scholars of migration and identity.
