Product Description


A study of immigration of Italian poor into Britain from 1810 to 1914 concentrating on those groups (artisans, organ-grinders, cooks, etc) for whom emigration, whether temporary, seasonal or permanent, was a way of life. The major theme is their adaptation to, or conflict with, the host society.

Great Reference Book 29 Mar. 2010
By Stuart J. Kerry - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having searched for a number of years for this out of print publication, I was pleased to find that O'Donoghue Books UK had this work for sale. It is a great reference piece that details the history and segmentation of Italians in the UK, and is ideal for genealogists.
