About the Book

A fascinating collection of stories of the struggles, hopes and successes of Chinese Australians: descendants of the 'old families', post-Tiananmen arrivals, Boat People of the 1970s, and those from Malaysia, Hong Kong and the Pacific. These voices, recorded for the National Library of Australia's Post-War Chinese Australians oral history project, reclaim heritage and dream of the future. They reinterpret what it means to be Australian.

First Sentence
