Scots in Australia by Malcolm Prentis
Book DescriptionScots have been 'invisible' ethnics but happen to be Australia's third largest immigrant group. The Scots in Australia is a long overdue and comprehensive history of Scottish immigrants - including convicts and free settlers - and their descendants in Australia from 1788 to the present. Combining anecdote, biography and straightforward history, author Malcolm Prentis reevaluates commonly held assumptions and myths from both ends of the migration process. Malcolm Prentis shows that the Scots have had an influence in Australia disproportionate to their numbers. The Scots in Australia powerfully demonstrates the countless ways in which the Scots and their descendants have shaped and been shaped by Australia.
