"A Global Clan" explores the impact of Scottish migration on New World development. With a new approach linking personal accounts to 'networks' of kin and social groups, this book taps into the expanding academic debate on migration linking imperial history and the European diaspora. Migration from the British 'Celtic fringe' since the eighteenth century has had a significant impact on the politics, economics, demography, sociology and culture of the New World, as forces shaping international politics and even war. The contributors use new material to explore Scottish migrant network.
