About the Book

Rich in human detail, penetrating in analysis, this book is social history on an epic scale. The first transatlantic history of the Irish, Emigrants and Exiles offers the fullest account yet of the diverse waves of Irish emigration to North America.

Drawing on enormous original research, Miller focuses on the thought and behavior of the ordinary Irish emigrants, as revealed in their personal letters, diaries, journals, and memoirs as well as in their songs, poems and folklore. Miller shows that the exile mentality was deeply rooted in Irish
history, culture and personality, and it profoundly affected both the traumatic course of modern Irish history and the Irish experience in America.

About the Author:
Kerby A. Miller is Associate Professor of History at the University of Missouri, Columbia.
