There are now thousands of Vietnamese

Settled in Australia. Who are they? Why did

they leave Vietnam? How did they get here

and what has happened to them since their

arrival in a new country? These are some of

the questions which the author asks. and

Some of the answers are surprising for a

country that once had a White Australia

policy. There are also some interesting

comparisons with the experience of other

countries with their Vietnamese settlers.


Vietnamese refugee migration is of historic

Significance to Australians; first, because ot

the White Australia policy heritage, and

second, because a number of these refugees

landed directly on Australia's northern

shores. These two factors make this migration


unique.


Dr Viviani offers a comprehensive discussion of the origins of these refugees, the politics of their entry into Australia and a study of their reception and settlemen experiences here. Her discussion is related to the broader concerns of racial balance in


Australia, of unemployment, of 'ghettos and so on. The story 1s also set in the context of the larger exodus of Indochinese, and the responses of Australia and other countries to that continuing problem.
