James Jupp, migration specialist, surveys changes in Australian immigration policy over the last thirty years since the significant shift away from the White Australia Policy. Jupp considers the history of Australian immigration in the twentieth century; the establishment of the "institutions" of multiculturalism and ethnicity and the waves of attacks on multiculturalism. He looks critically at the impact of economic rationalism on migration choices, environmental debates and immigration, and the impact of "One Nation." Most importantly he covers the controversial issue of refugees and asylum seekers comprehensively.

'Jupp's book will be much appreciated by those studying this field, as there has not been a book that has looked at Australian immigration policy in depth ... This book would be invaluable for those studying in this field as well as for general readers.' Australian Studies
"James Jupp is a doyen of Australian immigration research and commentary. Like his other books, From White Australia To Woomera is not only insightful but it is also well written." Pacific Affairs, Graeme Hugo, The University of Adelaide, Australia
