About This Book

Reviews

‘Sweeping from Aboriginal-settler clashes to current controversies over refugees, Migrant Nation […] reveals how national identity has never been about One Australia, but always about how its peoples have dealt with One Another.’
—Craig Howes, Director, Center for Biographical Research, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, USA
