Formatted Abstract/Summary


"Ethnic Cleansing" and other racial persecution of ordinary citizens in Kosovo and East Timor has brought international condemnation. In Australia this century - as in Canada and the US and many other countries - wartime governments herded German, Italian and Japanese civilians into home-grown concentration camps. A censorship ban meant Australians never knew the camps even existed. This unique volume features international scholars looking at the "enemy alien" response in 3 countries across 2 world wars. This book includes rare photographs of internees and their living conditions.
