Irish migrants in Britain 1815-1914: A documentary historyThis edited book uses a range of contemporary records, including Parliamentary papers, social surveys, newspapers, letters, and reminiscences to explore the experiences of Irish migrants in Britain between 1815 and 1914. The sources focus on migration, settlement, employment, social conditions, religion, Radical and labour movements, nationalism, and Unionism.
