Summary This book traces the patterns and impact of immigration to Australia since 1945, focusing on immigrants from non-English speaking backgrounds who came to New South Wales. Australia has been diversified by the range of immigrants who have come to its shores, a diversification that has been welcomed by some and vehemently opposed by others. The book describes the personal experience of many newcomers to Australia, who came as displaced persons, refugees on business migration programs or independently. Their testimonies show that while some were invited and encouraged to share in the Australian experiment, others have been treated as intruders. From the White Australia Policy to multiculturalism, no other area of policy has seen such heated debate as immigration policy. Over time, concern with migration as a concept has become concern for immigrants themselves, a change best understood by the term multiculturalism. The book contains incisive analysis of government policy on immigration, and looks at the important role played by the Ethnic Affairs Commission of New South Wales, which was established in 1976.
