Advance invites members to the book launch of Australians in Britain: The Twentieth-Century Experience.
Much is known about British migration to Australia and something is known of British communities in Australia, but knowledge, particularly quantitative, of the reverse process is very sketchy.
The phenomenon has been acknowledged but little explored. Developments in this field of research offer an important window on how Australians related to the 'British world' historically and on the dynamism of the contemporary relationship.
