This introduction explores the concept of migration and the contested nature of Britishness. The aim of the book is to explain famous and obscure migration to Britain, which includes migrants who were denied entry or those who have passed through only briefly, and groups who were allowed permanent settlement in Britain. The book discusses the history of British migration and presents eight case studies from the seventeenth century onwards. It explores how race, religion, ethnicity, place, gender, age and class are utilised in selecting which groups are granted or denied entry to the nation's borders.
