Colonial Cousins

A surprising history of connections between India and Australia

Joyce Westrip, Peggy Holroyde

Colonial Cousins
Colonial Cousins explores the historic relationships and connections between Australia and India, two colonies of the British Empire. The work considers affinities of landscape and culture, and documents relationships in trade and government, as well as anecdotal links from the time of Gondwana, when the continents were physically joined, to the present.

Praise for Colonial Cousins:
'Impressively and meticulously researched book ...' - Age

'The strength of Colonial Cousins, lies in the main text, which is a documented history of connections. It will certainly find a place in a University library.' - anglos in the wind
