Abstract

"The British in Rural France: Lifestyle Migration and the Ongoing Quest for a Better Way of Life." Michaela Benson. Manchester University Press. April 2011. --- The British in Rural France is a study of how lifestyle choices intersect with migration, and how this relationship frames and shapes post-migration lives. Through an ethnographic lens incorporating in-depth interviews, participant observation, life and migration histories, Michaela Benson aims to reveal the complex process by which migrants negotiate and make meaningful their lives following migration. Michelle Lawson finds that the book offers interesting insights into the everyday lives of British migrants and their quest to become embedded in French rural society.
