"Freda Hawkins recounts the immigration policy experiences of both Australia and Canada since 1972. This sizeable task is achieved with an adroitness and erudition that those familiar with Professor Hawkins' work will both know and admire. Indeed, this volume is a worthy complement to her earlier work Canada and Immigration: Public Policy and Public Concern [McGill-Queen's University Press: 2nd edition 1988] and, like it, is a book from which every reader has much to learn ... The book's unique comparison [of Canadian and Australian immigration policy] is important because it is revealing on a number of fronts ... Hawkins' reflections on future policy are equally revealing." Alan Nash, Policy Options Politiques. "Hawkins is one of a very few Canadian academics who focuses upon what might be described as the politics of immigration policy formulation and implementation." Gerald Dirks, Canadian Journal of Political Science. "I highly recommend this book." Nobuaki Suyama, American Review of Canadian Studies. "no one will be able to treat the period Hawkins discusses without reference to her excellent study." Jean Burnet, Journal of Refugee Studies. "There can be few texts on migration ... which are intrinsically so interesting to read as well as being so scholarly ... this is a classic text and one which will be of value to students of migration for a long time." Michael F. Hopkinson, British Journal of Canadian Studies. "Critical Years in Immigration is an informative and well-written study in comparative public policy. The tables and appendices provide a wealth of information that specialists in immigration will appreciate. General readers interested in contemporary Canada and/or Australia will find the book a useful introduction to a very significant aspect of both societies." Garth Stevenson, Australian and New Zealand Studies in Canada.
