This comprehensive introductory history of the Scottish diaspora explores the migration of Scots overseas, their experiences where they settled and the impact of this migration on Scotland. The book is distinctive in covering both the geographies of the diaspora and key theories, concepts and themes, including associationalism and return migration. As readers revisit these themes throughout the book they will gain an understanding of migration flows, destination countries and the legacies of emigre Scots overseas and at home.
