Title: Introduction - Australia and the Caribbean

Abstract: Historically, the degree of contact between the West Indies and the Antipodes has been considerable, particularly in the colonial period. But the Empire vestiges of the Caribbean in Australia are now quite eclipsed; and the sum present meaning of the Caribbean for most Australians is probably cricket, rum, exotic holidays and a residual childhood mythology of pirate adventure. This volume seeks to salvage something of the history and meaning of the Caribbean in Australia, simultaneously begging the question - what is the meaning of Australia in the Caribbean?
