"This investigation of the German experience in Australia during World War I focuses on the phenomenon of internment as the most restrictive measure dirested against Germans & German descendents. Fischer analyses the attitudes of the Australian government & people towards members of the German-Australian community. He proposes that this persecution - which imprisoned doctors, business tycoons & clergy in barbed-wire concentration camps - cannot be explained simply as war hysteria or a temporary aberration. This is a provocative study of a society confronted with the crisis of war." All pictures shown are of the actual product offered for sale Trade Paperback. Size: 150mm - 250mm.
