Reviews

Will be welcomed by historians of the Scottish diaspora and those interested in Australian migration....A book that will be read with profit. * ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW *
A highly readable book [which] makes a significant contribution to the field of Scottish migration, revealing without doubt the extent to which it must be regarded as an entirely separate and distinctive diaspora. * JOURNAL OF BRITISH STUDIES *
[This] book offers important new insights into the settlement of Scots in Australia, their networks, their culture, and, in a particularly important chapter, their interactions with, and impact on, indigenous Australians. . . . Wilkie's study is a well-written and nicely presented examination of one of Australia's most significant foundational migrant groups. * AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW *
A fresh and engaging excursion through the gloaming of Scottish Australia. * AUSTRALIAN HISTORICAL STUDIES *
