Transnational Times. "The Italians in Australia" by Gianfranco Cresciani [review]
Australian Book Review
The absence of any sustained discussion of later generations or of notions of transnationalism means that the book falls short of being a full representation of Italo-Australia in the present century, leaving a gap in an otherwise finely drawn picture. Overall, however, the book's strength is the lesson it provides on the brutality of assimilationist migration policies and on the continuing need in this country for a deeper understanding of the moral and political challenges of a genuine multiculturalism.
