The Great Migrations: from the earliest humans to the age of globalisation

£14.99

Product description

From the movement of homo erect-us out of Africa one million years ago to the Aboriginal settlement of Australia around 50,000 BC; and from the barbarian invasions of early medieval Europe to the diaspora of African slaves in the early modern period, the migration of peoples has been a critical motor of change throughout human history.

The book brings together 50 epic accounts of the mass movement of peoples. Each account not only describes the migration itself, but also examines in detail its causes, and its short- and long-term consequences. It tells a multiplicity of stories - of the discovery of new worlds, of flight from persecution, of nation-building, of colonisation, and of human courage and resourcefulness.

Most of all, it tells the enthralling and multifaceted story of the human race itself.

Migrations covered include:

The long walk out of Eden: the spread of early humans
The medieval German 'Drive to the East'
The first Americans
The Spanish in the New World
The Phoenicians and the foundation of Carthage
The Portuguese in Brazil
The Celtic migrations
The Plantations in Ireland
The Greek colonisation of the Mediterranean
The English in the New World
The Jewish Diaspora
The African Diaspora
The Huns and the Age of Migrations
Irish migrants in the 19th century
The Anglo-Saxon migrations
Gold rush to California
The Arab expansion
Back to Israel
The Viking Atlantic saga
The forgotten aftermath of WWII
The Turks from central Asia to Constantinople
Migrations in the age of globalisation
