About the Authors
  • Beginning with an examination of the conditions in Europe that led to migration, this book details the role of the Greeks in Australian settlement, the two large waves of Greek migration in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the ways in which the Greeks have maintained a solid sense of Greek cultural expression. Numbering approximately half a million, the Greek community in Australia comprises the second largest ethnic minority after the Italians. The contribution of Greek settlers to the large industrial cities and other major urban centers is vital to the economic, social and political life of Australia,

    • This book charts the history of the Greeks in Australia and should be of interest to both Greeks abroad and Greeks in Australia
    • This is a book that describes the social, economic, political and cultural organisation of one of Australia's robust ethnic communities
    • It includes many photographs depicting Greek life in Australia
