Ten Pound Poms : Australia’s Invisible Migrants
Hammerton, A.James & Thomson, Alistair
ISBN: 071907133X
Manchester University Press Manchester, United Kingdom 2005 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Paperback 388pp. 071907133X More than a million Britons emigrated to Australia between the 1940s and 1970s. They were the famous ‘ten pound Poms’ and this is their story. Illuminated by the fascinating testimony of migrant life histories, this is the first substantial history of their experience. The authors draw upon a rich life history archive of letters, diaries, personal photographs and hundreds of oral history interviews with former migrants, including those who settled in Australia and those who returned to Britain. They offer original interpretations of key historical themes, including: motivations for emigration; gender relations and the family dynamics of migration; the ‘very familiar and awfully strange’ confrontation with the new world; the anguish of homesickness and return; and the personal and national identities of both settlers and returnees, fifty years on.
