Front Cover
UNSW Press, 2007 - History - 203 pages
Australia has one of the highest rates of deportation in the western world relative to population, and deportation plays an important but neglected role in Australian immigration history. Drawing on archival material, case studies, court decisions and parliamentary debates, Deported presents the previously untold story of the use and misuse of deportation powers in Australia over the past 105 years.
