"...There are clearly dangers with any edited collection. Are the papers commissioned? Are the contributors self-generating? Do the papers cohere, but nevertheless do they cover a range of possible areas of exploration? Worthington's introduction is a master-class in exploring the topic in its widest sense and laying out the problematics...This then, is a striking and thought-provoking examination of the questions raised by Worthington..."

"British and Irish Emigrants and Exiles in Europe, 1603-1688, is certainly a useful addition to the historiography of the British and Irish diaspora in the seventeenth century. The editor is to be commended for trying to include England and Wales into a field where the Irish IRSS 35 (2010) 181 and Scots have dominated in recent years."
