“Natasha Pairaudeau gives us a solid and nuanced demonstration, based on a very large body of documentation (archives and periodicals) that she consulted in France, Vietnam and Pondicherry, and enriched by interviews with the descendants of certain families of “renouncers”. With this chapter on intra-imperial migrations, the author opens a new perspective for the historiography of the French Empire.”
