It is a highly readable and deeply researched introduction to the topic that ought to be within arm's reach of anyone working on the subject ... Migration and Empire is a meaningful contribution to the series, full of useful statistics for the teacher and researcher and fascinating anecdotes about the experience of the British migrant. * Charles V. Reed, H-Net * [a] comprehensive overview ... Both authors approach the subject having already published a large number of books and articles on emigration from the British Isles. They bring this expertise to the present volume in the form of highly detailed statistical data and a familiarity with the wider literature that makes possible a survey of such scope and ambition. * Bryan Glass, British Scholar Society * an important addition to the Oxford History of the British Empire Companion Series ... a narrative that awes us with the scope of movement through the British imperial world but also touches us with the diverse human stories behind the demographic trends. * Tilman W. Nechtman, History * Migration and Empire is the result of an enormous amount of work conducted by two well-respected scholars in the field of British emigration history. The depth and breadth of their combined knowledge is clearly evident in this book. * Lisa Chilton, Victorian Studies * This book marks something of a landmark in surveys of migration within the British Empire ... a quite staggering scope and depth of research ... a model for survey texts, innovative in its own right; it should be indispensable for teachers, students and scholars for years to come. * A. James Hammerton, H-Soz-u-Kult * The scholarship is splendid, with wide-ranging temporal and spatial coverage and original research. * David Northrup, English Historical Review * Migration and Empire is both thoroughly engaging and very readable. I recommend it to anyone wanting, not only to understand a central element of our heritage, but also the current migration streams to this country. * Michael Drake, Family and Community History * This study, in addition to being a major work of historical scholarship, also taps our contemporary consciousness. * Donald M. MacRaild, Times Higher Education *
