Explanatory notes:
Statistics: Where figures have been rounded, minor discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals (especially regarding percentage totals).
Square brackets, [ and ], denote explanatory or bridging remarks.
Reference numbers with an asterix refer to those references which include a comment.

Note: The chapter "The Yellow Peril", included in the first edition of this publication, has been reprinted as part of The Asianisation of Australia: Opinion Polls, the Traitor Class, and the Yellow Peril (Volume Three).
Also, various tables of migration statistics that were included in the first edition of this publication have been removed, as they have now been incorporated in The Asianisation of Australia: Statistics (Immigration, Ethnicity, and Trade) (Volume Two).
In striving to demonstrate the validity of this theory on the demise of the White Australia Policy, the author has deliberately sought to quote directly from the works of other authors in many instances.
