Migration and Multi-ethnic Communities
Mobile People from the Late Middle Ages to the Present
Ed. by Ojala-Fulwood, Maija
Aims and Scope
This book aims to shed light on a global and complex phenomenon: migration. In order to grasp this vast and ambiguous issue, the book offers ten multi-layered case studies, each focussing on one aspect of migration. With this selection of articles, this collected volume builds a bridge between the past and the present and highlight the many sides of migration. The chapters will demonstrate how the questions of controlled migration, movement of labour, improvement of one’s life, and interaction of people of different origin have puzzled us in the course of the last five hundred years.
»Wintermute and Ulbrich have written an essential primer for anyone interested in the complex synergies between gender, race, and war. Through an extensive use of historical case studies, they build a convincing case for the centrality of social identity in any understanding of military confl ict.« Joanna Bourke, author of Wounding the World and Professor of History at Birkbeck, University of London
»This work is not merely a trailblazer, but a pathfi nder that successfully establishes race and gender as self-sustaining elements of analyzing the causes, nature, and effects of warmaking.« Dennis E. Showalter, author of Instrument of War: The German Army 1914-1918
