During the decolonization movements following World War II, between four and six million people were "returned" to Europe from colonized lands. Until now, these migrations have been overlooked as scholars focus on the parallel migrations of former colonized peoples. This volume corrects this bias with essays by prominent sociologists, historians, and anthropologists on these "invisible" migrant communities. Their research highlights the experiences of colonists returning to France, Portugal, and the Netherlands; the intersections of race, citizenship, and colonial ideologies; and the ways in which these migrations have reflected the return of the "colonial" to Europe.
