The hypothesis forms part of a thesis entitled, 'The Lebanese Community in Melbourne' which was completed in January 1979 and submitted to the University of Melbourne. The Lebanese minority in Australia is perhaps one of very few national minorities which have not been studied in any form: as yet, no reseach has been carried out in a systematic and methodical manner. The thesis is thus intended to examine the structure of the Lebanese community as an autonomous ethnic group, the distinctive features which make it different from other ethnic groups, and the extent of its acculturation in Australian society. In addition it attempts to explore the extent to which the community has been able to perpetuate a native cultural tradition.
