A Long Road Home: The Life and Times of Grisha Sklovsky

By John Nicholson

A charming, brilliant, wealthy young Russian, he led a forcedly peripatetic life in Siberia, Berlin and France, and came to Australia as a refugee from a shattered Europe. He saw the SBS as a major influence in building a new society — Australian, English-speaking, British-law-based, multicultural and multiracial — and was instrumental in overcoming the challenges of its establishment.
