Studies in Irish Economic and Social History (Vol 8). Rare book. Last copies.

Between the early 1920s and the end of the twentieth century, two million people left the island of Ireland.

For many this continued exodus of mainly young men and women represented damning evidence of political and economic failure.

Yet the reasons behind the decision to emigrate could be far more complex than simple economic necessity.

Moreover the meaning of emigration for the individual was also changing radically.

Drawing together the results of the latest research, Enda Delaney offers a comprehensive survey of the causes, chronology and character of emigration from Ireland, north and south, from the troubled aftermath of the First World War to the end of the twentieth century, when what had long been a nation of emigrants became for the first time host to a growing immigrant population of its own.
