It looks and both the organised community as such, and individuals comprising it. In doing so, the author analyse this subject against the dual backgrounds of Australian society, and the history, religion and culture of the Jewish people. -- because so large a proportion of Australian Jews are migrants, the book concentrates on their integration into Australian society and their adaptation to it, thus adding significantly to the body of knowledge about the general processes of migrant acculturation and assimilation." -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
