Locating the English Diaspora opens up a rich seam of research that teases apart historians’ understanding of English ethnicity over six centuries in addition to a challenging reconsideration of the term ‘Diaspora’. The above could only ever be a précis of what is a broad and thought-provoking exploration spanning British and US historiographies of migration and ethnicity.

Very little has been written about the English overseas, and there are several really novel and informative essays in this collection. It should prompt much scholarly interest.
