'On the wing' focuses on a critical question, a generic question in the history of migration: relative mobility before and after the central act of emigration. This theme has the widest ramifications for the study of the origins and consequences of emigration for the source countries, for the receiving countries, and for the people themselves, the emigrants. Visible Immigrants is a series of essays by Australian historians, demographers, literary scholars, anthropologists, economics and immigration specialists. Recommended for students of history and immigration, university and school libraries, historians, archivists, oral history specialists, government and public libraries, genealogists and family historians, local history centres.
