To be honest, starting this article with the Australian company seems a little "Australo-centric". Given the historical significance of the company, surely it would be better to start the article with something like: "Allen and Unwin was a major UK publishing firm....blah blah. The name Allen and Unwin is now owned by the Australian company blah blah". It is very disconcerting to follow a link to George Allen and Unwin and be redirected to a page about an Australian publisher! Bathrobe 08:26, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
