Immigranten & identiteit

Post-Colonial Immigrants and Identity Formations in the Netherlands, edited by Ulbe Bosma, explores the Dutch post-colonial migrant experience within the context of a wider European debate, surveying over 60 years and three generations of migration history.    

While other research focuses on one or two ethnic groups, post-colonial migrants are treated here as a distinct analytical category with a unique relationship to the receiving society. After all, over 90 per cent were Dutch citizens before even reaching the Netherlands between 1945 and 1980. A timely work, it offers the germane scholarship on one particular country with a particularly rich history to readers worldwide.            

“Fascinating, comprehensive, and historically grounded, this essential volume reveals how the colonial past continues to shape multicultural Dutch society… It is an important counterpart to work on France, Britain, and Portugal.”– Andrea Smith, Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania
