About the book

Cover- Immigration Nation: Secret History of Us by A West, J Connor and K Connor

Immigration Nation is an ambitious and revealing three part series telling the secret history of how modern multicultural Australia was forged against the odds. The series uses interviews with eminent historians and eyewitnesses to these momentous events that built a nation, together with rarely seen archive footage and specially shot sequences in the actual places the events unfolded both here and overseas.

This is the story of who was allowed in and who was pushed out of a daring social experiment known as the White Australia Policy.
