    Australia's search for a national identity has been a constant struggle, caught as it is in striving for unity in diversity against a backdrop of imagined communities (Anderson, 1991) in which diversity is often viewed 'in radically asymmetrical relations of power' (Pratt, 1987). With Assimilation there existed 'an imagining of the national community in terms of a homogeneous way of life'. With multiculturalism 'the national is conceived as the space within which many, ethnically defined, imagined communities live and interact harmoniously. However, according to Stratton and Ang (1994), the principle of tolerance is often challenged and this can lead to frequent tensions.
