Abstract

This collection of fifteen essays in the developing field of Irish and Scottish diaspora studies focuses on the relations between emigrants and indigenous peoples in North America, New Zealand, and Australia. The introduction, by David A. Wilson, asks a number of pertinent questions—among them, whether the conditions of the Irish and Scottish settlers, such as their own colonial status, affected their response to the native peoples they encountered, and to what extent did the religious identities of the settlers (e.g. Ulster Scot Presbyterian, or Irish Catholic) influence their sense of kinship with native peoples, or not? The individual essays often provide evidence that challenges the reader's pre-existing assumptions concerning these issues.
