authors' profiles: BRITISH AUTHORS

Although British society has experienced a number of migration waves - due to the colonial history and its implications - the post-accession influx of Polish people to the UK seems to have exerted a greater impact on the country than anyone expected. The issue gained extensive media attention and generated a lot of interest from British authors. A number of books have appeared on the market since 2004 that describe the adventures of Poles in the UK. They talk about the vicissitudes of the members of the three migration waves, the first one being in the aftermath of World War II, the second one in the 1980s, and the last one when Poland joined the European Union. This section of the Archive presents the profiles of the British authors whose books were inspired by the recent migration of Polish people to the UK.
