Australia. Sogno di molti, meta per pochi
From Aborigines to colonization, from the Commonwealth to Australia 3.0. Guido Alvigini leads the reader to the discovery of a land that is still in some ways mysterious, and certainly complex.
The history, the nature, the natives and the “new Australians”, the construction of a multi-ethnic society, the inclusion of those who wish to settle in the island-continent … the author draws a three hundred and sixty-degree map, also providing information on the political system, public administration, the economy, the labor market, and a synthesis of the legal and tax system. Finally, the reader will find an in-depth analysis of immigration to Australia and, for the first time, a description of all available visas.
An essay, an administrative and law manual, a guide, a travel diary … all these things, together!
