There is currently a revived interest in British emigration to Australia; This book fills a gaping hole in the literature; Explores the experiences of migrants who returned to Britain as well as the lives of those who stayed in Australia; Draws directly and substantially upon the rich personal testimony of about 500 British emigrants - including oral history interviews, diaries, letters, memoirs and photographs collected by the authors; The authors are leading practitioners in the field and the book is alert to the subtle levels of meaning available through such sources and explores 'cutting edge' approaches and issues in life history research
