Summary "This book presents the findings of a study into New Zealand migrants' motives for moving to Australia, the migrant experience and adjustments to their identity. Using illustrative quotes it demonstrates that New Zealand migrants are influenced by a range of economic, lifestyle and personal factors. Their experiences in Australia are largely positive. They value what Australia has to offer and view their country of birth in a new light. Migrants feel at home in both countries but over time most adopt a predominantly Australian identity. However, migrants maintain a boundary between New Zealand and Australian characteristics and, while preferring to live in Australia, retain a strong positive regard for New Zealand"--P. 4 of cover
