Following on the success of his publication Racism, immigration and the law, the University of Western Australia’s Emeritus Professor Laksiri Jayasuriya AM has expanded his study of Australia’s multiculturalism in his latest offering Transforming a ‘white Australia’.

This volume explores the dramatic changes in Australian society since the advent of mass immigration post-World War II by looking at the politics of populating Australia, dating from the Immigration Restriction Act 1901—the so-called ‘White Australia’ policy.

It focuses on critical issues of race and immigration that continue to haunt in the ‘Asian century’ at a time when Australia is becoming more cosmopolitan and Asian-oriented.
