Secondhand. Good condition. A little edge wear to bottom book corners.
This book examines the Japanese presence in Australia from the late colonial period until World War Two. The Japanese who migrated to Australia were prostitutes, pimps and pearl divers but they were also families, farmers, fishermen, entrepreneurs and itinerants. The few who were granted citizenship were later stripped on the status and untold numbers made applications which were refused. With the outbreak of WWII, many Japanese were interned and most were denied permission to remain in Australia when the war ended.
