Summary: No fewer than 390 periodical publications in twenty-nine languages have been published in Australia since 1848. This work seeks to document fully the history of the immigrant press and to analyse the content of a dozen prominent newspapers currently published in Australia. The authors discuss the changing face of the immigrant press, its fluctuating success, and the contrasting fortunes of political and religious periodicals. The special functions of the press and its role in the assimilation of immigrants are carefully scrutinized in the light of a considerable quantity of evidence collected during the course of interviews with the editors and publishers. The book is one of the very few thoroughly professional pieces of sociological investigation in Australia.
