我的故事 ~ 序 ~ 二十世纪八十年代的澳洲华人

No comments yet

chinaustr2二十世纪八十年代,伴随着中国的对外开放,商业活动和个人游历活动日益频繁。历史上,从早期契约式劳工和淘金者到当代形式多样的商业贸易、小生意、投资、教育和旅游等,一波又一波的华人赴澳。本书的许多故事为我们了解这个时代背景下来澳的华人作出了独特贡献。

本书聚焦于二十世纪八十年代。书中有很多重要而独特的描述,讲述了华人,尤其是西澳华人的个人奋斗历程。

对人物进行的访谈,生动、细致地再现了他们辛酸的个人情感和奋斗经历。他们有着不同的背景,一些人持457签证入境,大多数人拥有或者寻求教育、专业工作或者经商的机遇。

尤为重要的是书中很多故事对这些华人来澳之前在中国或其他国家的生活经历做了简要回顾。这些细节为主人公由于文化缺失而显现的悲喜杂糅的复杂的心情提供了背景。我们由此能够体会他们语言学习的困境,对求职和工作环境的疏离感和陌生感。这种感受不仅产生在他们来澳之初,而且一直困扰着他们。

本书敏锐地反映了文化差异和文化顺应困难。经常带着一种澳式的幽默,主人公勇敢而坦诚地谈起自己的情感经历。虽然他们欣赏澳大利亚的秩序和机遇,大多数人还是表达了对中国饮食、家庭和文化习惯的偏好。书中探讨的核心是对“家园”的忠诚,地域和国家意识。诚实、细致入微地探讨认同、文化、家庭和“家园”等敏感的话题是本书的一个亮点和难能可贵之处。
