Summary
Australia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. It has beautiful cities and a splendid countryside. It has enriched its society by absorbing large numbers of immigrants since World War II. It takes part in world affairs. It is well regarded for its scientific, cultural and sporting achievements. In the midst of this plenty, the extreme deprivation of so many Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders is deeply shameful
