Overview

The Italians comprised the first truly large wave of immigrants to arrive in Australia from Southern Europe after World War II and currently number around one million. Gianfranco Cresciani's authoritative account of their significant contributions to the development of Australian society through the twentieth century is comprehensive. As an authority on Italian life in Australia, Cresciani provides a definitive account of the Italo-Australian community entering the twenty-first century.
