Review Quotes
" British and Irish Emigrants and Exiles in Europe, 1603-1688, is certainly a useful addition to the historiography of the British and Irish diaspora in the seventeenth century. The editor is to be commended for trying to include England and Wales into a field where the Irish IRSS 35 (2010) 181 and Scots have dominated in recent years."John Sherry, University of Guelph in IRSS 35 (2010) pp. 179-182

Description for Reader
All those interested in British, Irish and European history in the early modern period, as well as in migration and diaspora history.
Main Description
This book comprises the first full-length comparison of Scottish, Irish, English and Welsh migration within Europe in the early modern period. Divided into four sections - Immigrants and Civilian Life, Diplomats and Travellers, Protestants and Patrons and Catholics at Home and Abroad - it offers a new perspective on several themes. Contributors elucidate networks of traders, soldiers, as well as scholars and religious figures. Material regarding patterns of residence (sometimes of the nature of an enclave, sometimes not), places of worship, choice of marital partners, and cases of return migration, is presented, the results demonstrating clearly the fruitfulness of pursuing a comparative approach to seventeenth-century British and Irish history.Contributors are Waldemar Kowalski, Peter Davidson, Douglas Catterall, Steve Murdoch, Ciaran O Scea, Éamon Ó Ciosáin, Igor Pérez Tostado, Kathrin Zickermann, Barry Robertson, Siobhan Talbott, Polona Vidmar, David J.B. Trim, Tom McInally, Thomas O Connor and Caroline Bowden.
