AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A narrative of personal loss has now supplanted an earlier narrative of rescue and Empire settlement in the history of child migration to Australia in the twentieth century. This article outlines and seeks to understand how these narratives arose. The discussion then attempts to provide another way to explain child migration which embraces changing contexts while being based on a life cycle analysis of the experiences of child migrants both prior to and in the aftermath of migration.'
