Abstract: Given the vast amount of imports from Asia available today — from tableware to mobile telephones, and much of it demonstrating the latest in technology — one could be excused for thinking that our reliance on Asian trade is a twentieth-century phenomenon. Not so. As "India, China, Australia: Trade and Society 1788–1850" amply demonstrates, our trade with Asia began in the eighteenth century — even ensured the survival of the fledgling port of Sydney — and we have never looked back.
