Summary
"Bringing to light fascinating evidence such as letters, interviews, questionnaires and shipboard journals, together with more traditional documentary sources such as immigration files and maritime records, this book examines the experience of Irish and Scottish migrants between 1921 and 1965 in North America and Australasia." "Through a close reading of personal testimonies the author highlights the assorted similarities and differences between the Irish and Scots. Subtle differences rather than yawning cultural gaps are apparent; similarities in attitude and expectation are more common than divergent or unique experience. Based around personal narratives, the book portrays individual migration experiences which are often hidden in studies based on statistical analysis."--Jacket
