Book description

This memorial book honours the legacy of Eric Richards’ work in an interplay of academic essays and personal accounts of Eric Richards. Following the Eric Richards methodology, it combines micro- and macro-perspectives of British migration history and covers topics such as Scottish and Irish diasporas, religious, labour and wartime migrations.

Eric Richards was an international leading historian of British migration history and a pioneer at exploring small- and large-scale migrations. Starting with a foreword from David Fitzpatrick and Ngaire Naffine’s eulogy, the book includes Richards’ last public intervention, given in Amiens, France, in September 2018. This volume brings together renowned scholars of British and migration history who pay tribute to Eric Richards - a remarkable historian, but also a gentleman who is remembered for his kindness and humbleness. He stood as a role model for early career researchers.

This book combines local and global migrations as well as economic and social aspects of nineteenth and twentieth century British migration history.
