Product Description:

In 1901, the Immigration Restriction Act was passed in Australia, which was in essence and practice a "whites only" policy - in fact, the Act became known as "White Australia."  The restriction on immigration and settlement in Australia continued even after World War II, despite Immigration Minister Arthur Caldwell's declaration that Australia must "populate or perish."  Caldwell's answer to the population crises adhered to the White Australia policy but provided a solution - he instigated the immigration of Eastern Europeans to Australia so that the population would increase, the country's production and economy would improve, and Australia would gain strength to protect itself from enemies like Japan.
