Beschreibung:

Discusses Irish social history and its relationship to the Irish diaspora. The author argues that the history community still has a lot to learn from economic historians; and, simultaneously, that narrow, economically based explanations of the Great European Migration leave out many of the most important aspects of the whole complex transaction.

Deals with the research and writing on Irish social history and its relationship to the Irish diaspora. In this book, the author believes that culture and economic matters both count, and that leaving either one on the margins of explanation yields no valid explanation at all.
