Samurai in the Surf: The Arrival of the Japanese on the Gold Coast in the 1980s

Front Cover
Pandanus, 2005 - History - 236 pages
Samurai in the Surf explores the history of Japanese investment in the 1980s, following a money-trail that leads back to a ballooning Japanese economy and a colorful array of investment sources. The book also explores the local community's views of this unprecedented stream of foreign investment and provides a convincing illustration of the links between 1980s Queensland and Pauline Hanson's One Nation movement of the 1990s.
