Our devastating bushfires of 2019-20, their effects, meanings and implications, have not been forgotten. The Australian bushfire crisis of 2019-2020 was a disaster on an unprecedented scale which dramatically focused attention on the need to review and reassess fundamental attitudes to our relationships with nature, fire and the land. Continent Aflame assembles responses of the Australian community from many perspectives, including cultural, economic, scientific and artistic from some of Australia's most respected Indigenous and non-Indigenous writers, scientists, artists, scholars and activists.

Together, the contributions forcefully bear witness to the moral imperative we collectively face to make the changes that are now unavoidable. We may not get another chance.
