Abstract:

"Australia is one of the most ethnically diverse societies in the world today. From its ancient indigenous origins to British colonisation, followed by waves of European then international migration in the twentieth century, the island-continent is home to people from all over the globe. Each new wave of settlers has had a profound impact on Australian society and culture." "The Australian People documents the dramatic history of Australian settlement and describes the rich ethnic and cultural inheritance of the nation through the contributions of its people. It is one of the largest reference works of its kind, with approximately 250 expert contributors and almost one million words. Profusely illustrated in colour and black and white, the book is both a comprehensive encyclopedia and a survey of the controversial debates about citizenship and multiculturalism." "This unique reference will appeal to both a general and an academic audience. It will be a lasting resource both within Australia and internationally."--Jacket.
