Abstract:

"Most British born immigrants in New Zealand settle easily and almost imperceptibly into the host society. For others, however, from continental Europe, from Asia or Polynesia the problems of adjustment both physical and psychological are of such a different nature and degree of magnitude that separate consideration is justified. The objectives of this volume are to demonstrate the significance of non-British migration to New Zealand and to illustrate through more detailed studies of selected ethnic and racial minorities some of the characteristics of immigration such as segregation, dispersion, chain migration, rate of assimilation, social and economic goals of migrants and the problems they face. These studies should help create an understanding of the non-British immigrant and an appreciation towards integration. In view of the recent difficulties experienced by government and insutry in attracting from British sources sufficient migrants to meed the needs of a developing country, such an appreciation would seem all the more desirable"--Dust jacket.
