About this title

Synopsis:

What role does the US play in shaping Australian politics? Australia is one of the US's most staunch supporters: Australia has sent troops to Iraq, and is an ally in the 'war on terror'. Australian domestic policy also follows the US economic model, as state industries and services have been privatised. Erik Paul, a specialist in international studies, dissects the relationship between Australia and the US. He explores how Australia has become a key player in maintaining American dominance in South East Asia, and looks critically at the contrast between the Australian wealth and the comparative poverty of surrounding nations. Examining the influence of neo-conservative imperialism on Australia's economic and military strategies, he draws some startling conclusions about future Australian relationships in East Asia, in particular, its relationship with China. Written with clarity, this is an ideal introduction to the subject for students of international studies.

About the Author:

Erik Paul is Honorary Associate in Sociology at Macquarie University, Sydney. He was tenured staff at Macquarie University and for 25 years lectured on issues of development, urbanisation, geopolitics and the politics of Southeast Asia. His most recent book is Australia: Too Many People? (Ashgate, 2001).
