Lieutenant-Governor George Arthur , recently arrived from Van Diemen's Land, ensured the rebels were not let off lightly, and a total of 149 men were transported to Van Diemen's Land and NSW.

Latino Exile History Notwithstanding the Cuban American reputation as the paradigmatic Latino exile group, exile has also been a significant factor in the historical formation of all Latino groups. Shortly after the birth of the United States, Latin Americans began to arrive in the country as political exiles from various parts of the Spanish empire. The arrivals continued after the wave of independence from Spain (1810–1820s), as people...

...arctic exiles . In 1953 the Canadian government ‘experimented’ to see if the problems Inuit faced in southern parts of the Arctic could be solved by moving them into unoccupied areas farther north. Seven families from Port Harrison (now Inukjuak) on the eastern shore of Hudson Bay were moved to Resolute Bay and (ultimately) Grise Fiord, along with three families from Pond Inlet to help the more southerly Inuit adjust. The move came to be seen as a fiasco: the people likely did not know how far they were being moved; promises of return were next to...

..., INGATHERING OF THE , biblical concept, first expressed in Deuteronomy 30.3–5, that God will bring back to Erets Yisra’el his people who are scattered throughout other lands. According to the prophets, exile was a punishment for the people’s sinfulness. When Ezekiel prophesied the eventual return of the Babylonian exiles to their native land, he addressed himself first to the Judean exiles and then extended his prophecy to include the exiles of the northern kingdom (the ten tribes) who had been dispersed over a century earlier ( Ez. 37.16–28).

...exiles at war . The German armed forces made use of Soviet citizens because of manpower shortages. Very rapidly this became a political matter and heralded attempts to alter Nazi policy towards the population of the USSR. The unprovoked attack by the Third Reich on the USSR on 22 June 1941 ( see BARBAROSSA ) produced a very confused situation. Stalin had refused to believe reports of an imminent attack. Troops were unprepared. While some units fought valiantly against the invader, others surrendered or deserted to the German side, their attitude to...

...D'exiles, Antoine-François ( 1697–1763 ), novelist, translator, journalist, and encyclopedist. Antoine-François Prévost was much more than the author of the justly acclaimed Histoire du Chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut ( 1731 ). As a historian, moralist, and anthropologist—he once dreamed of writing a history of mankind—this gifted and prolific writer incarnates the tensions inherent in what the French literary historian Paul Hazard in 1935 called “the crisis of the European conscience.” His numerous recantations, his equal attention to...

...was formally exiled or simply fled voluntarily to escape worse. In addition, we often hear of political exiles, as individuals or groups. Again, it is sometimes unclear whether such exiles were driven out by actual decree or because life was for whatever reason intolerable. Decrees of exile were sometimes reversed. As a result of Alexander (2) the Great's ‘Exiles' Decree’, exiles returned to their origins. As beneficiaries of this general policy, Samians returned to Samos in 322 , 44 years after their expulsion by Athens, which therefore found itself...

In the additional prayer recited on festivals the phrase occurs: ‘because of our sins we have been exiled from our land and removed far from our country’. Tensions inevitably developed between the idea that Jews in the Diaspora are in exile and the desire for Jews to accommodate themselves to the life of the...
