Between 1652 and 1659 over 50,000 Irish men, women and children were transported to Barbados and Virginia. Yet until this book there has been no account of what became of them.

Sean O'Callaghan documents the history of these people: their transportation, the conditions in which they lived on plantations as slaves or servants, and their rebeliion in Barbados.

'An illuminating insight into a neglected episode in Irish history, but its significance is much broader than that. Its main achievement is to situate the story of colonialism in Ireland in the much larger context of world-wide European imperialsim.'  Irish World
