Rezension: "Fascinating and timely, this important book of essays restores the experience of immigration to its proper place as a vital part of England's history." -- Penelope Corfield, University of London. "Indeed, the book deserves to be read by anyone with an interest in the history of the early modern period." -- Judith Spicksley, Local Population Studies, No. 76, Sprin 2006. "...Goose gives an admirably thorough, authoritative, and balanced account of the important contribution made by these aliens to English economic developments in this period." -- Paul Slack, Population Studies, Vol. 60, No. 2, 2006. "This wide-ranging volume overflows with ideas for further research. Its relevance is forcefully underlined by a recent headline in The Times (December 18, 2005), heralding a 'new Baltic state of East Anglia'; many migrants are arriving now from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to work in Eastern England. We have been over this ground before." Joan Thirsk, English Historical Review. Vol. 121: No.491 (April 2006).
Buchbeschreibung Sussex Academic Press Jan 2003, 2003. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 247x174x16 mm. Neuware - It is now over 100 years since Cunningham wrote Alien Immigrants to England, which focused heavily upon the impact of immigration in later 16th and early 17th century England. It has yet to be supplanted by a comprehensive, up-to-date survey. Although much research has been completed on the subject, particularly during the past three decades, relatively little of this has appeared in mainstream history journals, while more general surveys have tended to concentrate upon the second wave of migration that followed the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. This book is a major reassessment of the size, nature, status, impact (economic, social, cultural), and international connections of Dutch and French immigrants in Tudor and early-Stuart England, written by a team of internationally recognized scholars. The volume comprises three sections. Part One examines aspects of immigrant communities in England, including their origins, legal status, the situation within the labor market and 288 pp. Englisch.
