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.
