The search for a clearer definition of the concept and the social implications of immigrants' integration is constantly renewed. Price extends his analysis to a number of different variables affecting and measuring integration or assimilation, including: urban concentration, the role of the ethnic community, intermarriages, political involvement, the important function of the churches, and intergenerational conflict. The experience of America is often compared with that of Australia. Although non-British ethnic groups make up only 20 percent of the Australia population, a one type melting pot seems impossible. Rather, the Author observes that some groupings are emerging according to religious affiliation. Nobody, however, can predict the exact period of time needed for total integration and the process will probably cover several generations.
