MINT - a NEW copy. Illustraed with colour diagrams. 282 pages Much has been said about Italian migration to Australia of the 1950s and 1960s but little is known or understood of the new, young, skilled and educated Italian migrants of the current period. This book, which is a product of more than 24 months of investigation into this recent migratory phenomenon, addresses this deficiency by bringing a broader appreciation to many aspects of Italian temporary and permanent residency to Australia. While addressing the meaning and extent of the growing temporary and permanent migration to Australia from 2004 until late 2015, this book contains a wide range of expertise and opinions that help explain this mostly unexplored topic ID298259
