"Continent Aflame: Responses to an Australian Catastrophe" assembles multiple responses to the Australian bushfires crisis of 2019-20. The moral imperative generated by the damaged continent, the unprecedented scale of the disaster, compels this response. Contributors demonstrate that the continent is aflame, both literally and figuratively. Indigenous and non-Indigenous scientists, artists, doctors, ecologists, writers and many others are "aflame", in despair, anger and hope. The book aims to help generate a resolve that comes out of these multiple reactions and which can lead to intense new possibilities.
