The first sociological study (using social anthropology techniques) of the descendants of British American Loyalists in Canada (Fredericton, Montreal, Toronto, et al.), and of the Southern Confederates in their capital Americana in Brazil. It examines the way political exiles who left their country (persuaded that their political causes were lost) decided to concentrate their efforts in the host countries on the survival of their cultures only. It documents the techniques through which the two groups (original exiles and their descendants) achieved that cultural survival and prominent places in their host-countries.
