British India, White Australia explores connections between Australia and India through the lens of the British Empire by tracing the lives of people of Indian descent in Australia, from Australian Federation to Indian independence. The White Australia Policy was firmly in place while both countries were part of the British Empire.

The racist immigration policies of dominions like Australia, and Britain’s inability to reform them, further animated nationalist sentiments in India. (back cover)
