Post WWII Migration In the early 1040s, the population of Australia was about 7 million and most of the people were of British origin. It was a difficult time for Australia at the end of WW2 in 1945 because after the bombings of Darwin, many Australians were left feeling threatened by some Asian countries, especially japan. Australia realised that in order to defend their country they had to ‘populate or perish’. So the government began to encourage more people from overseas to come and live in Australia, which lead to the largest European migration program that the country has ever experienced. Many migrants were from Britain, but steadily people from other European countries were allowed to settle in Australia.
The general population: the general public/society within Australia have remained torn between adopting and rejecting racism in the Australian culture, throughout Australia’s federation, and so racism’s spatial distribution has been widespread but very dilute and pocketed across the continent. Throughout the twentieth century, where Australia was relatively new and very proud (ideas involved with the world wars) most Australian’s embraced racism, especially working groups such as the miners and the farmers who competed for work with immigrants of different racial backgrounds (these immigrants included Italian, Chinese and Pacific Islander.) however as time has continued, and as Australia has grown significantly more culturally diverse, many
After the events of World War 2 in 1945, multiculturalism in Australian popular culture has emerged significantly. Evolving through the forms of food and tourism/ travel multiculturalism has contributed to the modern Australian identity. World War 2 left Australia with a much smaller population and the government realised that they needed to “populate or perish” As a result immigrants looking to find better lives started arriving in Australia between 1947-1963 brining new foods and customs. Food from different cuisines became a major part of Australian culture during the late 1900’s with many different types of food becoming available throughout the country. Forms of transport changed within Australia, as the increased population, caused
The Mexican-American culture and ethnicity is expanding in the U.S. both from education growth and social growth. The book presentation that was given by Jim Estrada was very impacting and gave me much knowledge about my background. Estrada gave many key points during his book signing one which he spoke of was that the Mexican-American ethnicity spent more than 1.5 trillion dollars in consumer product across the U.S., yearly. This is enormously important to the marketing and sell product of the United States which both affects economy and society. Eliminating or trying to take away this ethnicity group will demoralize the United States as a whole, for the core of this country I believe is the Mexican-American ethnicity.
Boeing acted as a leading private employer and the base of the Puget Sound economy because of the military contracts the Cold War provided. Population growth and diversification of the Pacific Northwest had occurred because of the range of desirable jobs in the area. The aftermath of the Cold War continues to influence world affairs today but until recently people are beginning to recognize the true extent of both the massive environmental damage that has resulted from military activities during the Cold War and how it has caused quite formidable damage to the human health. The continued expansion, production, and pollution occurring at Hanford and uranium mines had created the consequences could be felt for decades as seen in both the western interior of the United States and the city of Spokane. The individuals that live within the two areas have battled with health issues, from blood cancer to kidney disease, plus environmental contamination which stems from the radiation being exuded by chemical debris.
Legalized conscription truly revolutionized Canada’s future. The efforts put into making conscription possible created positive results, the increase in Canadian economy , increase in respect for women, and women 's political rights. All of this had only happened because of conscription. The Canadian economy improved drastically due to conscription. As more and more Canadians joined the war the demand for Canadian resources increased and new industries were formed.
Some Australians felt threatened by the amount of non – Europeans in Australia even though Europeans made up about 98% of the population. There was also a huge surge of nationalism at the time which made people want Australia for what they considered the Australians. The nationalism caused them value a ‘pure’ race of Australians in which there was no room for the migrants who had been living in Australia happily until that point. Many countries were greatly offended after Australia enacted the Immigration Act of 1901 but particularly Japan. They felt that they were a greater power than Australia and so the discrimination shown by Australia by passing the Immigration Act was a huge insult to them.
The Industrial Revolution that took place during the victorian era of England was characterised as being a time of mass expansion and modernization. The world was changing and thus effected the people of these times. The invention of steam engines and the development of cities changed everything for the people living in the nineteenth century, including social interactions and events. Although this time can be portrayed as a fanciful time of invention and development, many people suffered great injustice due to the need for labour and the greed of the upper class citizens. Child labour spiked and many families were left below the poverty line, which cause a significant spike in criminal related activity.
Australia is constantly changing as new families arrive from all over the world. More and more immigrants are choosing Australia to be their country of choice for a new life. It goes without saying that moving to any new country will make you miss home, however on the plus side; most people who move to Australia find the quality of life to be better than the quality of life in their previous countries. Australia
But then the Great Depression in the following years came. This Depression greatly impacted every citizen in the United States, from farmers to big-business owners. This time period was horrible for Americans. Although these two time periods greatly impacted the States, the booming 20s brought many, many technologies to America, and Americans today still use most of these innovations!
The twentieth century was a period of rapid change and growth. The century saw significant booms in worldwide population and urbanisation, as well as increases in industrial production and trade. Urbanisation also placed growing demands on the environment. Australia’s society grew in understanding and eventually became aware of these arising environmental problems, and as a result, Australians views, understanding and actions surrounding the environment changed. This period in time became known as the environmental movement- a time of great change and newfound maturity towards the environment.
