White Legacies. "Legacies of White Australia: Race, Culture, and Nation" by Laksiri Jayasuria, David Walker and Jan Gothard (eds). [review]
The Immigration Restriction Act (1901) was the centrepiece of the White Australia Policy and reflected the new nation’s desire to regulate the composition of its population and culture, free from British interference. This collection of essays, authored by some of the country’s foremost academics in law, history and politics, commemorates that anniversary. It is a timely publication, and demanding in its persistent consideration of what the Australian national project has been and what it could be in the twenty-first century.
