Odysseus in the Golden West: Greek Migration, Settlement and Adaptation in Western Australia Since 1947

Front Cover
API Network, 2009 - Greek Australians - 458 pages
Greek immigrants and their descendants constitute one of the earliest and most successful ethnic groups in Western Australia. Odysseus and the Golden West further explores their journey. The processes of migrant settlement and adjustment, the internal machinations, rivalries and operations of Western Australia's Greek communities and the contribution of Greeks to Western Australia since 1947 are examined. This research sets the experiences, achievements and adaptation of postwar Greek migrants and the Australia-born firmly within the economic, cultural and political context of the host society.
