***N.B. This is the non-U.S. Edition for non-U.S. Customers.In compiling this series of short stories, I attempted to give an honest and accurate account of what it is like to live in the heart of Australian multicultural society, and the socio-economic realities that go with it - with a great deal of tongue-in-cheek licence thrown in. It is important to note that the first four and last four of these stories stand apart and are not related to the 'Scrubwood' experience. Multiculturalism has become somewhat a dirty word in Australia of late, though in contrast to other countries, where most nations have failed, Australia has at least succeeded to a reasonable degree in providing a certain amount of cultural harmony. If 'Scrubwood' offends then perhaps you live in other parts of Australia or the world where you seldom encounter such, sometimes comical, socio-economic complexities. If so, welcome to my world. - Andrew Scobie (the Author).
