From The Indian Subcontinent by Katherine Prior
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A series that looks at the causes of large scale emigration from a particular country or region, the economic and political factors for people leaving and where they went to. It also explores the social and cultural consequences that the arrival of these immigrants has had on the countries they made their homes, looking at the problems the new arrivals encountered and ultimately celebrating the multiracial and multicultural societies they helped to create. From Eastern Europe considers the reasons people emigrated from Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, from the rise of Communism and the effects of anti-Semitism to the impact of World War II, and looks at the various places Eastern European immigrants have settled. From the Indian Sub-Continent looks at immigrants from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, why they left their home countries from the 19th century onwards and the lives they have built elsewhere.
