Special issues are difficult and delicate, given the burden of representation. Editor David Brooks confesses to providing only a glimpse of the rich field that might constitute Indian–Australian literary relations.

Given the slow but steady realisation in Australia that India should be a focus of attention for its scholars and students, this is a timely attempt.
