BOOK - Irish Migrants in the Canadas, A New Approach, Second Edition.
by Bruce S. Elliott

Irish Migrants in the Canada's Including a new preface by the author, Irish Migrants in the Canadas probes beyond the aggregate statistics of most studies of the migration process. Bruce Elliott traces the genealogies, movements, landholding strategies, and economic lives of 775 families of Irish immigrants who came to Canada between 1815 and 1855 from County Tipperary, Ireland. He follows his subjects not only from Ireland to Canada but in their subsequent movements within North America. His work has important implications for current discussions of nineteenth-century society in Ireland, Canada, and the United States.

Review quotes
    "The 'new approach' heralded in the subtitle of this book is indeed new and valuable ... The book is a methodological and research tour de force." Histoire sociale/Social History

    "Elliott's excellent study belongs in any library concerned with Ireland, Canada, or immigration." Choice

    "Elliott's book can be highly recommended; it is that rare thing among Irish studies of migration to North America, a book that says something new ... the scholarship is worn lightly and, despite numerous charts, maps and diagrams, this is a readable book of history." Books Ireland

    "Thorough research on both sides of the Atlantic is the outstanding mark of this study, leading to a clear picture of an interesting phenomenon. It is a fascinating story that will be of interest not only to every Protestant family in the district, but to all who are interested in local history or in the phenomenon of emigration." Roscrea People

    "This book is an immigration study on a scale never before attempted ... Any Canadian historian will find this publication quite remarkable. But genealogists are urged to read it and learn from it ... a brilliant legacy." Families

    "Elliott's emphasis on the family also results in some valuable insights into the inter-generational transmission of property, a fundamentally important topic which has been largely ignored in this country." Labour/Le Travail

    "It is without doubt the most useful historical work ever written on the Ottawa Valley ... A splendid example of social history at its best." The Ottawa Citizen

    "A significant contribution to an enduring theme in the historical geography of Canada." The Canadian Geographer

    "Bruce Elliott's study is impressive in giving both ends of the transatlantic migration chain." The Irish Review

    "Elliott has broken new ground in studying nineteenth-century immigration to Canada from a single Irish county." The Conrad Grebel Review

    "A significant contribution to our understanding of British North American settlement." Journal of Historical Geography

Bruce S. Elliott is professor of history, Carleton University.
