An engaging account of the ways in which over hundreds of years Indigenous and Southeast Asian people across Australia have traded, intermarried and built hybrid communities. It is also a disturbing exposé of the persistent – sometimes paranoid – efforts of successive national governments to police, marginalise and outlaw these encounters.
