Inhaltsangabe: A photographic history of the influence of immigrants on all aspects of Australian life, this book tells the stories of the millions of settlers from all over the world who have made their home there. The 500 images include the journey to Australia, learning English, building homes and clubs, enjoying family and community celebrations, playing sports and sharing their skills, The book highlights the contributions made by immigrants to the working life of the nation, on its cane fields and construction sites, on farms and pearling luggers, and in factories, cafes and businesses. The photograhs also explore the changing attitudes, policies and practices of the Australian community and its governments. They reveal the emergence of the cultural diversity that had become part of Australian society and national identity by the end of the 20th century. There are difficulties, triumphs, racism and acceptance, the tragedy of war, the trauma faced by refugees and the joy of family reunion.
