AbstractHistoryArchive Description

‘Though Australia has always been culturally diverse, multicultural publishing on a significant scale really begins after the Second World War when immigration changed the very nature of society.Ten million immigrants have come to Australia since 1788. Of these, two-thirds arrived after 1947, making Australia one of the most multicultural countries in the world. A quarter of our population was born overseas, and many others have family experiences of migration. Any history of the book in Australia should take into account the literary productivity resulting from immigration and Australia's cultural diversity.’(Introduction 268)
