Histories and Memories by Kathy Burrell
Book DescriptionThe first study of how migrants view their own history and how migrant history is viewed by British society, this book addresses themes of vital importance to contemporary history, and covers every aspect of the migrant experience. Who are the migrants that have flocked to Britain since the nineteenth century? How do they understand their experiences? "Histories and Memories" is the first work of its kind to examine this question from the perspective of the migrants themselves, and the way in which historians and popular culture have recognised them. In so doing, it explores a wide range of ethnic groups and experiences from racism to Britishness, self-perception and the role of memory in migrant history. This original, incisive book breaks down disciplinary and intellectual boundaries to address themes of vital importance to contemporary history.
