Australia's immigration policy - is it a brilliant experiment? Or is it already in tatters? In the 1970s Australia entered a new era of immigration, and its policy pointed in new direction. On 17 March 1984 historian Geoffrey Blainey made a speech questioning that policy. Since then a controversy has raged across the nation. In "All for Australia" Geoffrey Blainey examines the weaknesses and strengths of the current policy and looks at the nation's future. He places the debate in a social, political and historical perspective. He says much that has not been said before about one of the key issues facing Australia. Contents: Preface; 1.
