The history of Europe as a continent of refugees European history has been permeated with refugees. The Outsiders chronicles every major refugee movement since 1492, when the Catholic rulers of Spain set in motion the first mass flight and expulsion in modern European history. Philipp Ther provides needed perspective on todays refugee crisis, demonstrating how Europe has taken in far greater numbers of refugees in earlier periods of its history, in wartime as well as peacetime. His sweeping narrative crosses the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, taking readers from the Middle East to the shores of America. In this compelling book, Ther examines the major causes of mass flight, from religious intolerance and ethnic cleansing to political persecution and war. He describes the perils and traumas of flight and explains why refugees and asylum seekers have been welcomed in some periodssuch as during the Cold Warand why they are rejected in times such as our own. He also examines the afterlives of the refugees in the receiving countries, which almost always benefited from admitting them. Tracing the lengthy routes of the refugees, he reconceptualizes Europe as a unit of geography and historiography. Turning to the history of refugees in the United States, Ther also discusses the anti-refugee politics of the Trump administration, explaining why they are un-American and bad for the country. By setting mass flight against fifteen biographical case studies, and drawing on his subjects experiences, itineraries, and personal convictions, Ther puts a human face on a global phenomenon that concerns all of us.

This stimulating volume is perhaps the most complete history of population movements in Europes modern era and will find a place on the shelves of everyone who would understand the world in which we live now."---Derek Hawes, Journal of Contemporary European Studies "Ther is careful to bring the people involved and the societies that receive them into the equation. The numbers are eye-watering and the time period involved staggering. . . . Essential reading." * Survival: Global Politics and Strategy * "An eye-opening and comprehensive account of population movements over the last 500 years." * Paradigm Explorer *
