MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume nonetheless constitutes a highly valuable collection of essays. It brings together many of the best-known experts on either subject and showcases the increasingly sophisticated, critical, and professional character of research in these fields in recent years." (Gaelle Fisher, H-Nationalism, H-Net Reviews, February 2018)

"Articles are supremely researched, compelling, and enjoyable to read. ... This book provides a rich comparative study, the first of its kind, and certainly the first in English ... to address two lesser known populations of migrants who had and continue to have an important role in the national identities of France and Germany. Specialists in migration studies, diaspora and memory studies, as well as the unversed in the history of the Pieds-Noirs and Vertriebene, will find this book useful." (Amy L. Hubbell, EuropeNow Journal, europenowjournal.org, April, 2017)
