The History and Contribution of the Huguenots in Britain

Author Text to Follow

Second revised edition with enlarged plate section


An attractive study of the situation and assets of the Huguenots in the English community. The New Zealander Robin Gwynn has incorporated recent material into this fully revised version of an earlier work. The rich history of this community is portrayed in a colourful and lively way, supported by beautiful illustrations... The assimilation of these French people into the English community in the course of the eighteenth century provides the most interesting chapter. Fascinating. Highly recommended. Transparant (The Netherlands)

Index


Rarely does anyone, let alone a reviewer, wish that a book were twice its length, but this one is so informative, balanced and crisply written that it leaves the reader hungry for more.
Bernard Levin

The best survey of the Huguenots in England – a significant work of scholarship and a work easily accessible to the general reader. This new, significantly updated, edition is welcomed. English Historical Review

Delightfully written. This second edition is not only updated but also more comprehensively footnoted and illustrated than the first. Gwynn is to be congratulated once again on a book that is at once erudite and eminently approachable.
Local Population Studies

An exemplary account of the people who gave the term ‘refugee’ to our language… The text, plates, maps, tables, references and bibliographical notes of Gwynn’s book, the first full-length-study of the Huguenots in Britain to appear this century, are continually interesting… [an] impressive achievement.
