Liverpool in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was a great cultural melting pot and processing point of migration from Europe to the USA. The Irish in particular crossed to Liverpool in their tens of thousands before setting out across the Atlantic. Here for the first time acclaimed historian John Belchem offers a ground-breaking and extensive social history of the elements of the Irish diaspora that stayed in Liverpool, enriching the city's cultural mix rather than continuing on their journey. Covering the tumultuous period from the Act of Union to the supposed 'final settlement' between Britain and Ireland, this richly illustrated volume will be required reading for anyone interested in the Irish diaspora
