Synopsis

This is a stimulating book...The academic quality is very high, and the conceptual and methodological concerns are central to current debates concerning the second half of the twentieth century. The inclusion of a large geographic variety of cases is important and thought provoking. * Nancy L. Green, L'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris These transfers of sovereignty resulted in extensive, unforeseen movements of citizens and subjects to their former countries. The phenomenon of postcolonial migration affected not only European nations, but also the United States, Japan and post-Soviet Russia. The political and societal reactions to the unexpected and often unwelcome migrants was significant to postcolonial migrants' identity politics and how these influenced metropolitan debates about citizenship, national identity and colonial history. The contributors explore the historical background and contemporary significance of these migrations and discuss the ethnic and class composition and the patterns of integration of the migrant population. Ulbe Bosma is Senior Researcher at the International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam.

Jan Lucassen is Senior Researcher at the International Institute of Social History and Professor at the Free University in Amsterdam.
