Ireland's Invasion Of The World: The Irish Diaspora In A Nutshell (Paperback) By Miki Garcia
A comprehensive but concise study of the Irish Diaspora—packed with little known and intriguing facts about the impact Irish migrants have had on world history
Did you know that the Irish Diaspora is currently estimated to be over 100 million people? That's 15 times the current population of Ireland. In America alone, there are 40 million who claim Irish descent and Irish people have moved to all corners of the world—the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, France, etc.
They scattered not as colonizers but involuntary immigrants, notably slaves, and famine refugees, but each person played an important part of the host country. This book provides an overview of Irish immigrants in five continents—who fought wars, formed societies, shaped cultures, created new identities, and made history.
