NLA Call Number: OCN 3950 0044

It is a comprehensive survey and overview of aspects of Australian life. It includes chapters on general information, the establishment of modern Australia, its cities, the ABCs of Australian culture, economic development, and the education, welfare, political and legal systems-where the writer almost mockingly comments that Australia lacks the death penalty and regularly releases its murderers after only 10 years' imprisonment. It also covers issues such as immigrating to Australia, and information on Australian dwellings, transport, attitudes towards the environment, Sydney's Red Light District, a reflective account of fishing in Sydney, and the Australian Chinese experience (history, culture, politics, students).
