Surviving Kinsale

Irish emigration and identity formation in early modern Spain, 1601-40

Ciaran O'Scea

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first book on an Irish community in early-modern Europe that provides a complete socio-cultural X-ray of a community
  • The first monograph that presents a detailed study of the dynamics of integration and of acculturation of an Irish or of a foreign minority in early-modern Spain
  • It goes beyond the traditional confessional and British Isles framework of Irish immigration to Europe, and locates it within the wider context of the history of continental European minorities, both Christian and non-Christian
  • It applies sociological and anthropological advances to its analysis that permits deeper understandings of the relationships between foreign minorities and host societies and the moulding effects of their institutions and legal systems
  • It contributes significantly to our understanding of many aspects of Irish socio-cultural history not only of Irish immigrants but also in regards to Irish social structures and behaviours in an Ireland context.
