Building a New Community: Immigration and the Victorian Economy (Paperback)Andrew Markus (editor)
Paperback Published: 01/12/2001
- Not available
Across 150 photographs, a lively linking narrative and biographical sketches of individual Victorian immigrants, including Sir Gustav Nossal and Iain Hewitson, this book celebrates the contribution of immigrants to the development of Victoria. Though the focus is on economic contribution, "economic" is understood in the broadest sense and includes industry, culture, sport, education and raising families. The book makes a powerful case for the crucial importance of immigration to continued economic growth. The book has been commissioned by CEDA, the Committee for Economic Development of Australia, with the assistance of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, ANZ, Ernst and Young, the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs and Monash University and is written by a team of leading scholars from the history department at Monash. It should be of interest to everyone in the richly diverse "immigrant nation" that is Australia - not least the 50 percent of the population who are either first- or second-generation Australians.
