East by South: China in the Australasian Imagination

Front Cover
Charles Ferrall, Paul Millar, Keren Smith
Victoria University Press, 2005 - History - 439 pages
Ranging across literature, music, film, and fashion, the essays collected in this volume do more than simply examine the contemporary and historic Australasian perceptions of China and its people; they also discuss the sometimes repressive treatment of emigrants in Oceania and the contributions made by China and people of Chinese descent to the history of both countries.
