Description
Challenging the traditional narratives of Irish migration—stories of oppression and exile that form an essential part of the existing literature and an enduring image in popular culture—Graham Davis argues that most of the migrants were not forced to leave their country but instead looked forward to a better life abroad. They were largely opportunists rather than victims, whether financed by the state, by assistance from landlords or philanthropists, or, as in most cases, by themselves or their families. Davis, a renowned expert on Irish history and the author of Land!: Irish Pioneers in Mexican and Revolutionary Texas, places British and Irish migration alongside each other, and finds their circumstances to be surprisingly similar.
