The „white Australia policy“ has so far largely been
discussed with regard only to its political-ideological
perspective. No account was taken of the central problem of
racist societalization, i.e. the everyday production and
reproduction of „race“ as a social relation („doing
race“) supported by broad sections of the population.

This comprehensive study of Australian racism and the
„white sugar“ campaign shows that the latter was only able
to achieve success because it was embedded in a widespread
„white Australia culture“ that found expression in all
spheres of life.
