About This Book

20 years' work underpins this study of migrants from Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos who have settled in Australia since 1975 ie. just after the abolition of the White Australia Policy. Many came in poverty as 'boat people' a contrast ot Australia's main waves of middle class immigration. The issues addressed include : the confused politics of entry and settlement; residential concentration; employment and unemployment; Indochinese within and outside their communities and social relations between Australians and Indochinese. This lively and authoritative analysis raises many important issues including the validity of many public policies and the basis and application of the ideology of multiculturalism.
