Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0718501187, Paperback)An introduction to the major themes in the study of the Irish migrations, this volume explores the importance of family, friendship, work and community in establishing migration patterns. These themes are approached through case studies of individuals and groups: soldiers in 17th- and 18th-century Europe, wagon trains to California and bandits like Ned Kelly are placed alongside the urban poor and the migrant professionals of today. The collection also includes a study of the Irish in Argentina.
