'...John Bull's Island is the first reliable and comprehensive account of recent immigration to Britain. Essentially, it is a fine work of reference, superbly documented, orderly in its arrangement, lucid in style, encyclopaedic in its detail, cautious and considered in its judgments.' The Jewish Quarterly '...a well-produced and stimulating book that forcefully addresses the themes central to immigrant studies, providing an abundance of new material and an effective synthesis of the more familiar. Holmes will deservedly form an essential and vital part of the literature on immigration for many years to come.' David Mayall, Labour History
