Author(s): RICHARDS ERIC
"This book charts the history of migration to Australia from the twentieth century to the present. Written by one of Australia's leading historians of immigration, the book explores three main themes: the maintenance of British White Australia through to 1947; the Europeanisation of immigration through to the 1970s; and, the dismantling of White Australia and the radical diversification of immigration that has continued to the present day. More than just a linear history, Richards uses the drama of real stories and experiences to illustrate broader arguments and places Australia's experience in the context of international migration patterns."--Provided by publisher.
