In the century between the Napoleonic Wars and the Irish Civil War, more than seven million Irish men and women left their homeland to begin new lives abroad. While the majority settled in the United States, Irish emigrants dispersed across the globe, many of them finding their way to another ldquo;New World,rdquo; Australia. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Irelandrsquo;s New Worldsis the first book to compare Irish immigrants in the United States and Australia. In a profound challenge to the national histories that frame most accounts of the Irish diaspora, Malcolm Campbell highlights the ways that economic, social, and cultural conditions shaped distinct experiences for Irish immigrants in each country, and sometimes in different parts of the same country. From differences in the level of hostility that Irish immigrants faced to the contrasting economies of the United States and Australia, Campbell finds that there was much more to the experiences of Irish immigrants than their essential ldquo;Irishness.rdquo; Americarsquo;s Irish, for example, were primarily drawn into the population of unskilled laborers congregating in cities, while Australiarsquo;s Irish, like their fellow colonialists, were more likely to engage in farming. Campbell shows how local conditions intersected with immigrantsrsquo; Irish backgrounds and traditions to create surprisingly varied experiences in Irelandrsquo;s new worlds.nbsp;
