Summary Samurai in the Surf explores the history of Japanese investment in the 1980s, following a money-trail that leads back to a ballooning Japanese economy and a colorful array of investment sources. The book also explores the local community's views of this unprecedented stream of foreign investment and provides a convincing illustration of the links between 1980s Queensland and Pauline Hanson's One Nation movement of the 1990s.
Notes Summary: Readable, fast-paced and fascinating account of the 1980s property boom on the Gold Coast spurred by a flood of Japanese investment.
